Make your online videos accessible

This training will show you how to make video files accessible to all of your visitors.

During this training, we will look at the needs of the user. The following elements are required to make an accessible video:

  • A transcript
  • Captions
  • Audio description
  • An accessible video player
  • No flashing images

Our main focus will be transcripts and captions. You will get to work on your own video:

  • You will write your own transcript.
  • You will learn how to make high quality captions based on the automatically generated subtitles by YouTube and/or your transcript provides.
  • You will use an online tool to check whether your video contains flashing images.

This training will not teach you how to make or edit video's, nor will it teach you how to make audio descriptions.

Target audience

This training is intended for anyone who publishes online video's, or who prepares video's for online publishing.
