Check Your Understanding

1. Have the videos open captioned.

It is best if videos are captioned. Check with the publisher to see if this option is available. If not, encourage them to have the videos captioned for future use. This may take time but demanding that publishers provide their products in accessible formats is the best long-term solution. Since this may not be a reasonable solution to an immediate access issue for a specific student, consider the other options in this Check Your Understanding exercise.
