MEDIA-15: Provide an alternative for all synchronised multimedia content (e.g. a text transcript, or a link to a downloadable transcript).
How to test
- Identify any video content, or synchronised multimedia content (e.g. flash animations), and confirm that it has a text alternative which includes all important content.
How to fix
Provide provide a text transcript for this content, which includes all the spoken word content, as well as details of any relevant visuals (e.g. text on screen) and non-spoken audio content (e.g. such as important sound effects). The transcript should be near the video content, or there should be a clearly-marked link to it near the video content.
