In this webinar we’ll use the UDL framework to examine the benefits of captioning that go beyond making videos more accessible for viewers who are deaf or hard of hearing. For example, captions can benefit those learning how to read and those who speak English as a second language. We’ll then explore a number of best practices for creating more effective captions, and learn about a few tools to get started with a captioning workflow for your own videos.
