Video accessibility is important in ensuring everyone can access the content in an equitable way. This can involve using captions, a transcript, and audio descriptions, as well as using an accessible media player for playback.
Tips for accessible videos:
City uses the new, improved and more accessible version of Kaltura Media Player. The player has features that improve the accessibility of video media by staff and students by giving more control over the pace of content consumption and customisation.
The player provides an interactive transcript feature that can be displayed or hidden. You can play the video and follow the transcript. The text is highlighted as the video plays.
You can search for a specific word or term and select it in the interactive transcript to navigate straight to that location in the video. You can also download a text file of the transcript.
To improve the readability of captions on the videos, you can now increase the font and change the colour and background of the Kaltura captions.
You can continue to change the playback speed of the video, and to move quickly or slow down at chosen parts of the content.
