Two Options for Audio
One of the most straightforward ways to make multimedia content accessible is to add captions to audio or video tracks.
This method does not require changes of design/layout, as it adds the accessible content directly into the current media.
“D" links (descriptive or definition links)
Often used as a simple and quick way to add accessible information to complex content.
The most common method to employ "d" links is to add the letter "D" immediately following a media object, and then to create a hyperlink from the "D" to a text-only page. "D" links are often used as a text equivalent for users with visual disabilities as well, making them a good option for reaching as many users as possible.
