Many libraries offer instructional videos for use on their websites.
Unfortunately, research shows that oftentimes these videos are inaccessible to patrons with disabilities. For example, Clossen and Proces (2017) found that only 52% of the videos they examined were properly captioned, and many had additional accessibility problems.
In this webinar, Melissa Wong helps participants learn to create fully accessible instructional videos. The webinar begins with a brief overview of disability that puts accessibility practices into context, then introduces design practices that support accessibility, including planning, narration, typography, and graphic design. Finally, the workshop introduces standards and practices for captions, transcripts, and descriptive audio.
