Here is Zoom’s accessibility page
It is recommended to get Drexel’s ODR involved,
if this is for an event that where special accommodations are specifically required.
Or if you have a student with an AVR letter in a
class in which you are using Zoom,
and the letter states needs related to lectures and lecture recordings pertinent to Zoom
You should likely also email email@example.com ,
if this is for an event that where special accommodations are required
Meeting host or participants can control font-size and multi-spotlight pinning,
or people using pinning on their own.
And Zoom has a number of built-in accessibility features.
See above Zoom link.
Zoom automated live captioning is good,
but it’s our understanding that it’s not ADA-compliant,
or at least you need a transcriptionist to create a final transcript or caption for any audio or video recording.
It’s safest to have a human live transcriptionist or captioner,
if at all possible and if needed for the situations mentioned above.
You definitely need a human transcriptionist or captioner involved in providing transcriptions or captions for recordings. Again, firstname.lastname@example.org can often help with that,
if for a student with an AVL letter or for an event where accommodations are specifically required.
Drexel email@example.com may be able to help with human-made transcribing or human-made captioning. They may be able to pay for a 3rd-party service, or that’s my understanding.
Human-made transcribing or human-made captioning is not something any of the Drexel CCI full-time tech staff can do,
nor can any of the Drexel CCI tech support student assistants.
Nor can we create textual descriptions of images, scenes, graphs, etc.
There is a way to have a paid professional captioning service either have someone live caption,
or provide an automated captioning for live streaming.
Below is a link with more info.
- Again, it's recommended to email firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com for how best to set this up.
