Deaf or hard of hearing students will need captioned videos in order to gain informational access to course or departmental videos. Below is information on how faculty or departments can attain captioned videos. Please contact our office if you have questions about this process.
Automatic Sync Technologies allows users to upload videos and have them returned with captioning in place.

Web Accessibility Checker
The Functional Accessibility Evaluator (FAE) can assist by letting web developers know exactly what needs to be changed on a web page to make it accessible. This is important to ensure individuals with visual impairments can gain full access to web pages using screen reading software. The FAE can be found here: http://fae20.cita.illinois.edu/
