Imagine watching a movie without the audio, or listening to dialogue without watching the screen; it would be difficult to understand the full context of the movie. If your page includes video content, it’s essential to provide captions, transcripts, and/or audio descriptions to ensure all users are able to understand your video’s message.
Media/Widget assets are ideal for embedding HTML content in your guides, such as YouTube videos, search widgets, or widgets from other Springy tools (like LibCal Hours widgets, for example). Unlike Rich Text/HTML content items, Media/Widget assets are stored in your assets library. As a result, once someone creates a Media/Widget asset, it can be reused over and over in other guides.
Transcripts in YouTube
Information about transcript availability included in the description.
Summary: Captions (for video) or a transcript (for audio) should be included with all multimedia content produced by University of Minnesotans, including instructor- and student-created content. These alternate formats improve the playback experience for your audience in a variety of contexts and situations.
