Accessibility Standards Application

Are you ready to learn more about the Seven Accessibility Standards that we must adhere to since we are a federally funded school? You can scroll through the seven standards on this page or click through each standard using the table of contents on the left-hand side of the page.

 

Remember, these accessibility standards must be used when creating, redeveloping, or sharing all digital content with learners.

Do you need to make your Zoom video accessibility?  Zoom will provide automatic closed-captioning and transcription for a meeting after it has been recorded. 

However, when hosting a live meet, the closed-captioning and transcription features will not be available. These two features are only available after a Zoom meeting has been recorded.

Another option for obtaining closed-captioning and transcription on your recorded video would be to use Youtube.  You will need to upload the Zoom MP4 video file to your personal YouTube for closed-captions and transcription to be activated.
