The UF Electronic Information Technology & Communication Accessibility (EITCA) accessibility policy outlines standards and guidelines for compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA), as amended, and Sections 504 and 508 of the 1973 Rehabilitation Act, as amended. These standards include providing captions for all videos with audio.
Captioning is important to video audiences who are deaf or hard of hearing. They are also utilized often by other viewers, including those for whom the spoken language in the video is a second language, those viewing in a loud environment, those viewing in a sound-sensitive environment, such as a library, and those with a learning disability.
