Who we are

The Media Accessibility Project is a special project funded by the CUNY Council on Student Disability Issues (COSDI) to provide training and engage with faculty, instructional designers, and other content producers to maximize accessibility in online, hybrid, and traditional learning spaces and courses.

What we do

Provide training and resources on:

  • Creating accessible audio/video content, which includes closed captioning and transcripts
  • Creating accessible digital documents, such as Microsoft Word, Microsoft PowerPoint, and PDF Documents for online course content

“As we gain more insight from our CUNY campus surveys and service requests, the Media Accessibility Project will refine its delivery of services along with the establishment of online and face-to-face training resources.”
