The audio content of video materials and any audio files must be captioned and/or transcribed for students with accommodations. This includes commercially-produced video, free video on the Internet, and any video that you create. LITS and AccessAbility Services are available to help you (please see below for details).
Video that is uploaded to the Mount Holyoke College website for public viewing should also be captioned.;
Please contact the Mount Holyoke College 504 Coordinator if you are planning an event and incorporating accessible features. They can provide assistance and guidance as you develop your campus event.
If not available through Kanopy, LITS will caption library-owned DVDs that are streamed for courses. LITS is also often able to acquire content for this purpose. To request video from LITS, please place a course reserve and note that you have a student in the class who requires captioning to access these materials.
Please work with AccessAbility Services. This can sometimes be a time consuming process and, if not feasible, will require a plan to provide an equal alternative form of access to the content.
LITS offers Zoom as the primary video conferencing option for the campus community. Although Zoom is a very advanced video conference system as regards accessibility, some users may still need alternatives to fully participate in Zoom activities. Each meeting organizer or their designee is responsible for providing accommodations for Zoom users with disabilities. See LITS recommendations for Zoom accessibility.
