Accessibility Tips

WCAG 1.2.2: All videos are to have synchronized captions embedded into the video. Please do not totally depend on the auto-generated captions generated by YouTube – it is not 100% accurate, as YouTube uses artificial intelligence (AI) to generate the captions. Additionally, the transcript should be housed on the same page as the video itself, or the transcript should be used to edit the auto-generated captions generated by YouTube. To learn how to edit captions generated by YouTube, please visit UTK OIT’s Quick Reference on Captioning Videos on YouTube.
