How to address criterion 1.2.2 in the context of time-variable media:

  1. If a video has audio, you must add captions!
  2. If the video has a text alternative nearby, you don’t have to add captions (this is an exception);
  3. We can add additional content to the captions if it helps better understanding for the audience, for example:
    “[Orchestral Suite No. 3.2 in D major, BWV 1068, Air]
    [Johann Sebastian Bach, Composer]
    ♪ Calm piece with a slow tempo ♪”
  4. Caption language versions – as always, a plus (you reach a wider audience).
