The Information & Communications Standard, under the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act, includes web accessibility requirements. The University has committed to meet all WCAG* 2.0 Level A requirements, and meet the Level AA requirements where feasible.
For Level A compliance, captions are to be provided for all pre-recorded audio-visual content. Therefore, all screencasts hosted on the Library website or Library channels are to be captioned.
*WCAG is the acronym for Web Content Accessibility Guidelines. More information is available at http://www.w3.org/TR/WCAG20/
Use closed captioning (CC), for it enables viewers the choice to view with or without captions.
Note: Captions take up approximately 25% of the lower section on your screen, therefore plan accordingly.
To export the .srt file click the Export captions button at the bottom of the captions window. Camtasia will prompt you to name and select a save location of the file.
When you have published the video, email the .srt file along with the video to the designated staff member responsible for the YouTube account. They will upload both files which will allow for Closed Captioning to turned on and off.
