Re: Audio description in WCAG 2.1 AA success criterion 1.2.5

Personally, I do think that requiring AD at AA (particularly *because*
it's not something that can be done easily, and might require videos to
effectively be duplicated if they have to have different lengths because
there are no gaps) is quite burdensome depending on the nature of the
original video, and - as ever - the SC lacks nuance here about how
easy/hard it can be to retrofit existing non-AD videos.
