In higher education, video captions, transcripts, and audio descriptions of video content are required on all published videos.
According to Title ll of the Americans with Disabilities Act, governmental organizations must ensure “effective communication” with citizens; Section 504, all federal entities — and organizations that receive federal funding — must make accommodations for equal access; Open Meetings Act, Texas Government Code, Chapter 551 and Texas Administrative Code (1 TAC §213.32), as written in the previous list.
This applies to:
