Adding Closed Captioning to your YouTube videos . . .

The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) is a piece of federal civil rights
legislation that prohibits discrimination and guarantees that people with disabilities have the same opportunities as everyone else. There are two sections of the ADA, section 504 and section 508. Section 504 - making accommodations for students with disabilities, such as giving students extra time on an exam, and providing a ramp for wheelchair access. Section 508 - all course materials must be accessible for all students.

YouTube has a lot of great tools that help you manage your videos.  One of them is the ability to add closed captioning.  Captioning is a good way to make you videos accessible for your viewers.

You can upload a file, edit captioning that is already there, or listen and caption on the fly.

Below are a couple of links to explain these services in greater detail.
