Colleges and universities must ensure media is accessible to deaf individuals whether it is media for coursework (supplementary or required), videos posted on the institution’s website or social media, or other materials such as those available through the campus library. This also includes videos used for educational purposes that are not captioned by the original production company. Many institutions are creating proactive policies to captioning media to avoid delays in access for deaf students as well as to support all students in universal design.
