Media captioning and audio description

Accessible Ed & Disability Resources is here to make sure all students have equitable access to media in a timely manner. To do this, we:

  • Encourage proactive captioning for high-demand media
  • Provide audio description upon request
  • Produce or obtain accessible versions of un-captioned media
    • We work with instructors to make sure all videos shown in classes are fully captioned or subtitled
    • We work with students to caption special course materials, such as CDs included with course textbooks
  • Send notifications to instructors when students need captioning.
    • Instructors should respond to notices from Accessible Ed & Disability Resources promptly
    • Course presentations needn’t be delayed because of inaccessible materials
