1. Create a transcript

Transcripts allow anyone that cannot access content from web audio or video to read a text transcript instead.

  • Include all dialogue and the identity of who is speaking.
  • Include any non-speech information conveyed through sound (e.g. meaningful sound effects)
  • Include any information that is required to tell the same story and present the same information as the audio recording/podcast. For example, sound effects or tone of voice.
  • Ensure the transcript identifies which person or character is associated with each described action
