11.2.1.2: Audio-only and video-only (pre-recorded)

Where ICT is non-web software that provides a user interface and that supports access to assistive technologies for screen reading and where pre-recorded auditory information is not needed to enable the use of closed functions of ICT, it shall satisfy the success criterion in Table 11.2.

Table 11.2: Software success criterion: Audio-only and video-only (pre-recorded)

For pre-recorded audio-only and pre-recorded video-only media, the following are true, except when the audio or video is a media alternative for text and is clearly labelled as such:

  • Pre-recorded Audio-only:¬†An alternative for time-based media is provided that presents equivalent information for pre-recorded audio-only content.
  • Pre-recorded Video-only:¬†Either an alternative for time-based media or an audio track is provided that presents equivalent information for pre-recorded video-only content.
NOTE 1: The alternative can be provided directly in the software - or provided in an alternate version that meets the success criterion.
NOTE 2: This success criterion is identical to the WCAG 2.0 Success Criterion 1.2.1 Audio-only and Video-only (Pre-recorded) with the addition of note 1 above.
