Video Captioning

Captioning Video

Overview

De Anza College is committed to accessibility and equity for all students. The use of captioned video materials is part of that commitment, which is in compliance with Section 508, part of the federal law known as the Rehabilitation Act of 1973. These standards clarify how to ensure that persons with disabilities have access to technology.

Students have different learning styles, and in accordance with the principles of universal design, De Anza College strives to provide multiple means for students to learn.

Using captioned video in courses and on-campus events is one way to achieve this, and a way of supporting all students: those with hearing disabilities and those without. Providing textual representation of multimedia material is a way to help students be successful.

Please note: For information about supporting students with hearing disabilities, please contact  Deaf and Hard of Hearing Services.
