White Paper: How 5 Colleges Cultivated Video Accessibility at Their Institutions

Between the ADA and the Rehabilitation Act, most institutions of higher education – both public and private – are required by law to provide closed captions to students who are Deaf or hard of hearing. However, while the need for accessibility is universal, most colleges and universities approach closed captioning in very different ways. Every school is different, every administration is different, and every department is different. Some choose to caption all video content, predicting more strict requirements down the road. There are even colleges and universities that have seen how beneficial captions can be to all students and have expanded their captioning efforts to include interactive video tools and search initiatives.

This brief will show you five different approaches to captioning in higher education. You will be able to see how different colleges and universities with different needs have tackled budget, policy development, initiatives to caption more universally, DIY captioning, and working with a captioning vendor. With insight from both private and public universities, this brief will provide you with useful information that you can apply to your institution's accessibility initiatives.
