Event description
Making audio and video accessible is critical to making the web accessible to everyone. Learn why it’s important and how to do it.

About this Event

Audio and video are everywhere on today’s web. Yet all too often, they aren’t accessible to people with and without disabilities. It doesn’t have to be this way! With a little know-how and planning, you can make your audio and video accessible.

Focusing on the user experience, our accessibility expert Eric Eggert will teach the pillars of accessible audio and video: captions, transcripts and audio descriptions. You’ll learn about the benefits of transcripts, things to avoid with captions, when to add audio description, and when other media alternatives are sufficient.

You’ll also learn:

  • Why automated captions are a last resort option
  • How to plan for media alternatives from the beginning
  • What you need to engage professional captioners
  • The difference in accessibility requirements for live and recorded media
  • What to consider when choosing a media player
  • Why sign language is essential for an inclusive approach

In celebration of the 35th anniversary of the screen reader, the cost of this webinar is just $35!
