I really agree with Alan on this. Reading and listening are two discrete
activities. I rarely think text transcripts as a replacement for description
have any value. First of all, fairly rew people read Braille at a level to
keep up with the audio. I do, but it's really like having two events.

Allen -- you raise an interesting point. If a transcript -- actually
a complete and true script of the video, with all speakers identified --
also included the kind of information used in audio description, would
that be an optimal solution? It would allow better hunting and
skipping. I'm just asking.
