Listed are some selected examples of accessible media from various industries. If you know of more good examples, please contact me.
- Vanguard website videos and podcasts
The video example has an option to turn on closed captions as well as a link to a transcript on a separate HTML page while the podcast example has a link to show/hide transcript and a checkbox to autoscroll it.
- An HTML page with a captioned “Why Caption Your Video?” YouTube video and a static transcript below it.
This example allows people (hearing or deaf) to skim a transcript before deciding whether to watch a video that has an option to turn on/off captions as well as see an interactive transcript that could be seen on the video’s page on YouTube website. A static transcript is also ideal for deaf-blind users and mobile phone users.
- An HTML page with a captioned “UX Trends For 2013″ YouTube video and a static transcript below it.
I rarely see good examples of accessible videos like this, and I would encourage more people follow that example.
