automated tests of multimedia

I've been looking at many of the automated test suites, trying to find
one that can do automated tests of multimedia: are the controls in this
HTML 5 media player accessible; are there captions on this video; there
appears to be an audio so a human should manually check for transcript.
That kind of thing. I haven't found any of the automated tools that
have that functionality. Am I missing some? Ideally I want something I
can integrate into unittests, although I understand that a lot of
accessibility testing is on the order of "hey developer, go check this
and make sure it works!"
