Session Description:

500 hours of video content is uploaded to YouTube every minute; that’s 30,000 hours of content every hour! Video content takes up 82% of internet traffic and is on the rise. How can you be sure your videos are accessible to everyone and, in turn, more valuable and engaged? This session will review the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) related to videos and walk you through the options for making video content accessible including best practices for captions, audio description, and text alternatives. Finally, we’ll show you some examples of our “progress over perfection” journey with video accessibility at Cisco Secure.
