Check Your Understanding

4. Provide the student with a transcript of the content to read.

It may be difficult for the student to read the script as well as glean the important visual content from a video presentation. If this option is used, give the student the transcription to read before a video is presented. Be sure the transcript clearly reflects the visual content as well as the spoken words in the presentation. Before the day when you will use the video presentation in class, talk with the student about this and other options that might work best; consider consulting the campus disability services office for advice.
