Captioning - Functional Outcomes

Our first draft of Functional Outcomes are below. The wording of these still needs to be altered but the overall concepts are correct.

Potential Tag ideas are taken from the Silver Ideas for Tagging Document.

Outcome 1: We Need Captions

1) Translates speech and key sound effects into alternative formats (e.g. captions) so media can be understood when sound is unavailable or limited

Existing Success Criteria (Perceivable)

  2. Success Criterion 1.2.3 Audio Description or Media Alternative (Prerecorded)
  3. Success Criterion 1.2.4 Captions (Live)
  4. Success Criterion 1.2.6 Sign Language (Prerecorded)
  5. Success Criterion 1.2.7 Extended Audio Description (Prerecorded)
  6. Potential Tags

    • Principles - Perceivable
    • Technology - Web, VR, AR, XR.
    • Semantic Meaning and Context - Unsure
    • Activity - Copy and Content Creation, Development?
    • Functional Need -
      • Usage without hearing
      • Usage with limited hearing
      • Usage without vision
      • Usage with limited vision

Outcome 2: We need meta data of sound effects

Conveys information about the sound in addition to the text of the sound (for example, sound source, duration, and direction) so users know the necessary information about the context of the sound in relation to the environment it is situated in

Existing Success Criteria (Perceivable)

  1. Success Criterion 1.3.1 Info and Relationships
  2. Success Criterion 1.3.3 Sensory Characteristics

Outcome 3: Second screen adaptions should be possible

Provides captions and caption meta-data in alternative formats (for example, second screen or braille display) to allow users the opportunity to move caption and meta-data to alternative displays. For example, this benefits users without sound and vision, users who need assistive technology to magnify portions of the view, or users who have limited reach.

Outcome 4: Customization of captions

Provides customisation of caption style and position to support people with limited vision or color perception. Customisation options can benefit all users.

Potential Tags

Outcome 5: Time alterations for caption viewing

5) Provides customisation of caption timing to support people with limited manipulation, strength, or cognition
