April 30, 2019 @ 1:30 pm - 3:00 pm EDT
More and more organizations are creating videos and posting them on YouTube. Many have taken advantage of not only the ease and reach of YouTube but its accessibility features in supporting Closed Captioning to reach a wider audience. This 90-minute webinar will give you the tips and best practices to ensure your YouTube and other web-based videos are captioned accessibly.
Organizations are increasingly aware of their legislative requirements to help ensure everyone has access to online content – though many are not aware that accurate captioning is actually a basic, WCAG 2.0 Level A necessity. Participants will learn how to caption in a way that provides optimal comprehension while meeting legal compliance and get a step-by-step walkthrough of the YouTube captioning editor.
