Descriptive Transcripts

To produce a descriptive transcript, it is recommended to start with an accurate caption file and then add in the appropriate level of description.

Adding a Transcript to a Website

Having a descriptive transcript doesn't mean you don't need captions on your video. Captions are always required for videos, even if the video is silent (captions or note reads: "no audio") or there is only music (captions briefly describe music). Audio description, however, does take care of the transcript requirement.
