This webinar, the first part of a multi-part series, will present the basics of improving the accessibility of digital audio and video collection materials hosted in archives’ and libraries’ digital repositories. During the 90-minute session, attendees will gain a deeper understanding of the many benefits—beyond simply satisfying legal requirements—of providing alternative media such as captions/transcripts and other accessibility remediations. Presenters will demystify key concepts and share common approaches and practical first steps to adapting the accessibility of digital (digitized and born-digital) AV holdings, as well as discussing strategies for making the business case for accessibility.

Presenters:
  • William Hicks, Head, User Interfaces, University of North Texas Libraries
  • Daniel Jacobs, Captioning and Transcription Service Manager, University of Texas Libraries
  • Emily Vinson, Audiovisual Archivist, University of Houston Libraries
