Video, audio, and multimedia supplements

  • Provide information in multiple formats, with a heavy emphasis on visual formats
  • Make sure your content is compatible with screen readers or other voicing tools
  • Provide voice captions (audio files for text)
  • Make sure that the voice in the audio tracks is clear and well-articulated
  • Make sure that the content of the audio version corresponds correctly to the text version
  • Provide text alternatives to non-text content (e.g. Image captions)
  • Transcribe audio tracks
  • Use video to supplement text. A moving, talking person in a video may be easier to identify and mentally process than a textual content or even a static image of a person in a photograph
  • Provide audio descriptions and text alternatives to videos
