Accessible Video Creation

Creating videos that are accessible to all viewers is not just a concern for a niche audience; it’s a craft that enhances the overall viewing experience. Learn how to create accessible video content in the newest chapter of the Accessibility Handbook for Teaching and Learning. This comprehensive guide explains how to plan, script, record and distribute your video.

Apart from the basics of recording setup and adding closed captions, this chapter has a special focus on integrated audio descriptions. This practice seamlessly adds audio descriptions of visual information into your video script. This accessibility and universal design for learning practice ensures everyone, from blind or visually impaired users to those watching on a phone, can engage and understand the video’s content.

Read about video accessibility before you record your next video lecture, screen capture, or announcement video. With a little planning and attention to detail, anyone can produce videos that are not only informative but inclusive and accessible.
