@feonixrift The weird thing is that if you look at the source, some of them do have transcripts, but it's hidden with CSS, which makes it inaccessible to screen readers (maybe it was originally made for text-based browsers, which wouldn't surprise me since hypothetical text-based browser users often seem to get more attention than all of the very real screen reader users out there).
