If the video is showing how to bold text in Word - for example. Instead of
saying "ok select your text, go to the top of the window, click the b." You
can say "at the top of the window, you have the ribbon, the bold option is
found in the home tab, in the font group, and uses a capital B to identify
it. Alternatively you can press control and b." Caption that, and now it
would be considered captioned and audio-described
