MEDIA-05: Provide audio descriptions for all prerecorded video content, which are complete and do not skip important content.
How to test
- Review any pre-recorded video content and assess whether the visual information in the video is available in the audio track (including on-screen text and important visual details).
- If not, confirm that an audio description track is available which provides this information.
- Where all the visual information in the video track is already available in the audio track.
How to fix
Provide audio descriptions for the video. This may mean providing an alternative version which has audio descriptions built-in to the audio track, or use a video player which supports switchable audio descriptions.
