Going Beyond Captions: Creating Accessible Instructional Videos (Niche Academy)
Wednesday, March 29, 2023
Many libraries offer instructional videos for use on their websites. Unfortunately, research shows that oftentimes these videos are inaccessible to patrons with disabilities. In this webinar, Melissa Wong will help participants
learn to create fully accessible instructional videos. The webinar will begin with a brief overview of disability that puts accessibility practices into context, then introduce design practices that support accessibility, including
planning, narration, typography, and graphic design. Finally, the workshop will introduce standards and practices for captions, transcripts, and descriptive audio.
