Do HHS videos and multimedia products need to be captioned or audio described?

0

The video and multimedia technical provisions (c) and (d) pertain specifically to HHS videos and multimedia products. They state that all training or informational video and multimedia productions, which support the agency’s mission, must be captioned for persons who are hard of hearing or deaf and audio described for persons who are blind or low vision. Also, if the informational video or multimedia production has audio or visual information that is necessary to comprehend the content, then they must be captioned or audio described. For example, CDC produced a videotape to convey its mission. The video was captioned (words appear on the screen) so that persons who are deaf or hard of hearing can see the content of the video. The tape also provided audio description (spoken words) so that persons who were blind or low vision could listen to the content.
