Accessible Videos

For a video to be accessible, it must have captions.

Captions are a text version of the audio of a video. Unlike subtitles, which are typically a straight translation of spoken dialog, captions can and should include other audio elements that are significant to the understanding of the video. Captions can also include notations for who the speaker is and when speakers switch. Caption files are text files with timing added to them. A video player will use this text file and join it with the video. The timing in the caption file is used to show the text on the screen at the appropriate times.

Although YouTube's auto-captions have improved recently, you should not rely on auto-generated captions. For best accuracy you should develop an accurate text transcript of a video, then use a tool or service to synchronize your transcript to the video.
