All third-party content must be compliant if linked from another website. This includes videos linked from Youtube and Vimeo accounts. Customers are responsible for handling closed-captioning and transcriptions of their videos. If you are a subscriber to the Campus Suite ADA Service Plan, then you get up to 60 minutes of video transcription per year. Just submit a support inquiry to our support desk. We will need your actual video file to begin the work.
Videos must have close-captioning and a transcription available.
Any video without audio should have an accompanying audio description track.
Captions - text synced with media with relevant sound effects included.
Transcripts - not synced with video, good for podcasts. More for people who might have a hard time understanding the language
Two different types of captions;
Open - burned into the video and cannot be turned off
Closed - can be turned off by the viewer
Video captioning should be as accurate as possible. Automatic captioning like what Youtube provides automatically is not yet very good.
Captioning makes videos accessible for hearing-impaired users. It also helps with comprehension and a retention of information
Captioned videos assist with SEO, because the text can be found by google.
