Captions or transcripts of video and audio content are required by law and must be provided in “a timely manner” as an accommodation for a student with a disability. Faculty/instructors should contact Student Disability Studies (SDS) at email@example.com for information regarding captioning for students with an accommodation.
If a student in your class has an accommodation related to hearing, video content must be captioned or it cannot be shown in class.
Best practice calls for captions and transcripts to be provided for video and audio content shown in class or used as a supplemental resource. Captioning course content proactively ensures that you are prepared if you receive an accommodation request from a student with a disability. To learn more about captioning priorities, contact Accessibility at firstname.lastname@example.org. Individual schools/college/departments/units are responsible for the cost of preparing materials to be accessible.
If you have questions or concerns specifically related to classroom accommodations, such as extended test time, distraction-reduced test environment, note taking, etc., please contact Student Disability Services (SDS) at (662) 915-7128 or email@example.com.
