Time-based Media

Audio-only / Video-only

The intent of this Success Criterion is to make information conveyed by prerecorded audio-only and prerecorded video-only content available to all users.

Captions (Prerecorded)

The intent of this Success Criterion is to enable people who are deaf or hard of hearing to watch synchronized media presentations.
