10.2.5: Captions (live)
Where ICT is a non-web document, it shall satisfy the success criterion in Table 10.5.
Captions are provided for all live audio content in synchronized media.
NOTE 1: The WCAG 2.0 definition of "captions" notes that "in some countries, captions are called subtitles". They are also sometimes referred to as "subtitles for the hearing impaired". Per the definition in WCAG 2.0, to meet this success criterion, whether called captions or subtitles, they would have to provide "synchronized visual and / or text alternative for both speech and non-speech audio information needed to understand the media content" where non-speech information includes "sound effects, music, laughter, speaker identification and location".
NOTE 2: This success criterion is identical to the WCAG 2.0 Success Criterion 1.2.4 Captions (Live) with the addition of note 1 above.
