A great resource! Examples in the scoring items assist in user understanding. I like that the excel sheet summarizes scores and provides both an accessibility score and a usability score.

Both sections of the In-line EqTD AUDIT Excel spreadsheet appear to sufficiently address the necessary requirements for equivalent text descriptions. Moreover, the quantification of the demonstration of accessibility using percentages allows an effective measure of conformance to EqTD standards. Lastly, the .pdf manual provides thorough context and clear instructions on EqTDs which helps those unfamiliar with the topic become quickly acquainted with this measure and form of accessibility.
