The keys to unlocking barriers to learning

Accessible Video

keys graphic

There are a few things to keep in mind when creating a video. In order for users who are deaf or hard of hearing to be able to understand the content of your video, you will need to include captions that are synchronized to appear when the audio is heard.

If your video has visual content that cannot be understood through audio alone, including an audio description will make your video accessible to users who are visually impaired.

Transcripts of your video can be quite helpful for making the video accessible to people who have visual disabilities, are deaf or hard of hearing, or who have learning disabilities.
