Hello Richard,

Here is guidance:
* Making Audio and Video Media Accessible https://www.w3.org/WAI/media/av/

See particularly:
* Audio Content and Video Content - accessibility considerations when planning, scripting, storyboarding, recording, and producing audio and video https://www.w3.org/WAI/media/av/av-content/
* Audio Description of Visual Information - including info on "Integrated Description" and an example video https://www.w3.org/WAI/media/av/description/

Here's a presentation that introduces that resource, and has integrated description: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xqoei_G4UNM

Some rough draft, not professionally done videos of competing a process in a web app (target audience is not novices):

Hope these help!
