Captioning Standards and Guidelines
Departments are responsible for ensuring the following content is accessible:
- Videos posted on public web pages (e.g., UArizona’s website, YouTube channels, Facebook pages, iTunesU, etc.) must be captioned (*auto-generated captions are not sufficient).
- Content that requires NetID login and is mandatory for UArizona students or employees should be accessible.
- In some instances, audio description of videos may be required.
- Use a captioning request statement
|Content intended for the public||Must be captioned. *Auto-generated captions are not sufficient.|
|Content not intended for public viewing, but posted on a public site (e.g., YouTube, website, etc.)||Consider restricting access with NetID or other secure options with the statement listed below, allowing viewers to request captions as needed.|
|Outdated content currently posted on a publicly available site||Review and please consider removing or archiving it.|
|For content in the development stage||Plan and budget for accessibility|
|For live streamed events (webinars, ceremonies, Facebook Live, etc.)||Follow our Communication Access Guidelines.|
