Section 508b of the 1973 Rehabilitation Act requires that "Equivalent alternatives for any multimedia presentation shall be synchronized with the presentation."
This means video files and live audio broadcasts used in the classroom must have synchronized captions or transcripts, and that content presented visually via video should have a content description track.
Are Library DVDs Closed Captioned?
Not all of them.
The Library makes every effort to purchase closed captioned films when possible. Some materials are never captioned.
