- Plan for accessibility from the very start of your project (before recording), to save time and money.
- Make audio and video content accessible. Avoid accessibility barriers when scripting, storyboarding, and recording content.
- Use a media player that supports accessibility.
- Describe visual information – such as charts and speakers’ names in text – so that people who are blind and others who cannot see the video get the visual information needed to understand the content.
- Provide captions (called “subtitles” in some areas) so that people who are Deaf or hard-of-hearing get a synchronized text version of the speech and other audio information needed to understand the content.
- Provide a text transcript from the caption text and the description of visual information so that people who are Deaf-blind get the video content.
- Provide sign language when possible, so that Deaf people whose native language is sign get the content in their native language.
