Academic Video Online (formerly Alexander Street Press Videos)

From AVON's Accessibility statement:

Users of the Alexander Street Video Platform should be able to:

  • Access captions and fully searchable transcripts for approximately 95% of all videos.
  • Go directly to main content areas on the page using skip links.
  • Listen to most of the website using a screen reader.
  • Navigate the website and control video playback using just a keyboard or speech recognition software.
  • Zoom in up to 400% using browser tools without text spilling off screen.

Descriptive Audio (aka Audio-Described Video)

Descriptive Audio videos have added narration to a video that describes on-screen images for the benefit of those with visual impairments. ProQuest has already added descriptive audio to its most popular titles and will continue to add more upon request by a library at no charge.
