Obviously, for radio or another audio-only program, 100% of the information is carried to the listener by audio. But even for video productions, including Webbased programs, audio is critical to fully carry the message in the most accurate and complete form. Audio should be considered at the beginning of any production and not added as an afterthought once all visuals have been determined.
