Are your videos compliant with
Digital Accessibility Standards?

Digital Accessibility Standards are The World Wide Web Consortium’s Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.1, Level AA Conformance (WCAG 2.1 Level AA) for websites and web-based applications and services. 

WCAG requires that web content comply with four principles, called POUR:

  • Perceivable: Information must be presented to users in ways they can perceive.

  • Operable: Information must be operable.

  • Understandable: Information must be understandable.

  • Robust: Content must be interpreted by a wide variety of user agents

It requires that time-based media (such as video) provide alternatives to video and audio, such as captions and audio description to ensure that multimedia content can be accessed by the deaf, hard of hearing, blind and low vision users.

Additionally, Level AAA Conformance requires that where pauses in foreground audio are insufficient to allow audio descriptions to convey the sense of the video, extended audio description is provided for all prerecorded video content in synchronized media (video).

Bespoke Audio Description offers WCAG, Section 508 and ADA compliant solutions. Read more about the latest accessibility findings in our blog.
