ADA Compliant YouTube Videos

how to search for Ada compliant youtube videos

Unfortunately, the beta captioning that has been implemented by YouTube isn't accurate enough to satisfy accessibility requirements.  The instructions below explained how to search YouTube for videos that already have ADA complaint captioning. 

  1. Enter your keywords in the YouTube search text box, and click on the 'Search' button
  2. On the results page, click the 'Filters' button (underneath the search box)
  3. Click 'CC (closed caption)' and a list of ADA compliant videos will be displayed.  You can tell if a YouTube video is compliant if the video indicates CC under the video description.  See example below
