Creating Inclusive Learning Video 

Inclusive Learning

Why it is important to create more accessible learning video

Inclusive learning video or video accessibility assists a person with a disability to understand and use an online videoIt allows people with disabilities to access information that they otherwise would not be able to. It enables more users to interact with others without being classed as “disabled” and allows them to undertake activities which they may not otherwise be able to do. 

How do you ensure your video is  inclusive?  

Follow these 6 easy pieces to creating Inclusive Learning Video. 

  • Piece 1 – SCRIPT 
    Write a script for your video presentation and consider accessibility from the start. Keep your script short and to the point. Introduce yourself as the speaker by stating your name and title. Script all spoken content in advance. Identify any important visual content whilst writing your script. 
  • Piece 2 – RECORD
    Record your video following the supplied guidelines. If you are using your own device to record your video, such as a smart phone or tablet, make sure you record in landscape format and use the camera on the back of the device for a better resolution. Face towards the main light source and try to have a solid colour background if on-screen graphics are to be added. A white or very dark colour background is advisable to enable text or graphics with clear contrast. Audio quality is very important so make sure the microphone is close to your mouth and make sure you are in a quiet location.  
  • Piece 4 – CAPTIONS 
    Generate captions for your final video edit. Make sure you review them carefully, make any corrections needed and publish. Test that your captions work correctly in the platform that your video is presented. 
  • Piece 5 – TRANSCRIPT 
    A transcript is more than just the script of what is spoken in the video. It should also contain descriptions of the action or information on-screen. It must be provided in text, HTML or Word and must be immediately after the video or linked alongside the video. 
  • Piece 6 – AUDIO DESCRIPTION .
    If needed, add an audio description. This is a spoken audio track played along with the video and it lets blind and vision-impaired users know what’s happening on the screen. It is important that this includes all visual information. These can be a bit tricky, and ideally should be taken into consideration during the production of the video.
