Does audio used as an alternative format to dialogue also need a transcript.

I have an interesting question about audio clips in dialogue/scripts. We have a text that with some dialogue that is set off as a block quote. Clicking on that block quote will start an audio clip of the dialogue spoken by an actor in an audio player or new browser window. Would that audio clip then require a transcript even though all of the dialogue is already printed in the main body of the text? Nothing is presented in the audio clip that is not already in the block quote.
