Obtain Transcripts or Closed Captioning

Videos are considered content and therefore must be captioned for accessibility purposes.

If the video host allows, you must provide closed captioning for your videos. If captioning is not available, transcribe the video and provide a link to the transcribed content.

YouTube is recommended because you can create and edit captions. Vimeo and Kaltura also provide captioning.

For videos uploaded to Kaltura, the embed code available there should be added to Drupal in the source view.  Kaltura is password protected and follows the Fair Use Act which protects and keeps the content private.

Kent State has worked with 3Play and Rev to support this initiative.
