2.01.10.a Multimedia: Answer


What would make an appropriate alternative for "The annoying thing"?

  • Not option: None
  • Not option: A text transcript
  • Not option: Captioning
  • Correct option: A brief description of the function of the media piece. Personally speaking I would use "The annoying thing is a short media piece depicting a strange animated character pretending to ride a motor cycle".

As you can imagine providing a text transcript or captioning would be difficult to say the least. Fortunately there is no real content to the piece except for an imaginatively annoying sound track and an excellent 3D animation.
