Transcripts - Easy Checks

What are Transcripts?

Basic transcripts are a text version of the speech and non-speech audio information needed to understand the multimedia content. They are similar to captions, but in a format that can be easily opened and read.

Descriptive transcripts for videos also include visual information needed to understand the content.

For videos with visual and audio information, ideally a descriptive transcript is provided, and a separate basic transcript is not needed.

Why are Transcripts important?

Transcripts are important for people who are deafblind to understand a video. Screen reader users may also prefer the transcript over listening to the audio of the video.
