Make Videos Accessible

All videos posted or linked to NYSED websites must have captions so that they are accessible for all users and to ensure compliance with NYSED's Web Accessibility Policy. Each program area office is responsible for obtaining captions for any videos that they decide to post on their website.

Resources for Creating Captions:

  • Creating Video Captions Using YouTube – These instructions explain how to create captions by using the free captioning tool in YouTube.
  • Captions may also be purchased from several vendors such as, GoTranscript, Scribie, etc.
