Captioning and Audio Description

University Commitment to Captioning

The University is committed to ensuring that information is accessible to everyone who uses University resources, including students, faculty and staff, campus visitors and visitors to University-supported websites. Captioning and/or transcription is an essential part of ensuring access to audio/video materials, and in some cases is required by federal law.

Audio Description

Audio Description (AD) is for individuals with visual disabilities and refers to the insertion of audio content to relay important visual details. Information in an audio description should be provided in a way that does not interfere with other audio such as dialog or sound effects. Audio description allows a person with vision impairments to fully understand the visual content delivered via video or live performance.
