Three tips for creating accessible videos

1. Work from a script. You can always deviate from it, but having a rough script will make it easier to add captions later.

2. Consider how to best convey visual information. If you are using charts, graphs, photographs or other visual elements, consider sharing an accessible version students can access independent of the video. Also, be sure you are describing the key components of the visual element – do not assume your audience is seeing it in the same way you are.

3. Don’t fully trust auto-captioning. It provides a good start and saves time, but it’s not perfect. Next week, we’ll go through how to order and edit captions in Kaltura.
