The challenge we have is that since we use an authoring tool,
we don't have access to the backend HTML. I agree with you
Sandy, if they can close the transcript option should be ok.
However, they may be instances where the audio explains an
image and it would be best to see the transcript while you are
looking at the image.</div>

<p>how about a &lt;details&gt;&lt;summary&gt; block? It'll
push things down when it's open, but everything will still
be there.<br>
<p>I think if the images aren't visible while the user is
reading the transcript that's ok. They'll be visible again
when the details are closed. <br>

<pre>Hello everyone, I hope you are doing well. I am trying to find creative
ways to display transcripts on screens with limited real estate. These
screens are generated using authoring tools (Captivate, Storyline, etc.)
Sometimes screens have text on the left, important images to the right and
audio. We need to show the transcript but if we put the transcript button
with a popup to the right of the text, the images will be covered once the
user clicks the button to display the transcript. Unfortunately, the popups
are not movable.

We tried adding the transcript at the bottom but that does not work either.
Having the script display in a PDF in a separate window is an option but it
would require us to ensure all PDF's are accessible.

Do you have any other suggestions?
