Video and Audio

Some portion of your audience may experience auditory disabilities. If you are using video and audio on your site, there are several options to consider:

  • Add Closed Captioning
    YouTube and Vimeo offer Subtitle or Closed Caption options which can be accessed under settings once the video is playing.

  • Create a Transcript
    The only way to make video or audio content accessible to someone who is both deaf and blind is via a transcript. This transcript can then be converted into Braille or read by a screen reader.

  • Add Audio Descriptions
    An audio description is a recording of a person explaining a video's visual aspects, which are not indicated in the video's original dialog or narration.

For help creating transcripts and descriptions, contact Disability, Re-Entry and Veteran Services to see if they have a service available. To view their website visit Disability, Re-entry and Veteran Services.
