The Media Accessibility Project is a Special Project funded by the CUNY Council on Student Disability Issues (COSDI) to:
- Provide audio and video (a/v) captioning services, which includes closed captioning and transcripts, for students with disabilities that benefit from captioning
- Provide resources on creating accessible documents that include Microsoft Word, Microsoft PowerPoint, and PDFs
- Provide training to campus DS/AT staff and other relevant parties on best practices in this area
- Engage with faculty, instructional designers, and other content producers to maximize accessibility in on-line, hybrid, and traditional learning spaces and courses
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 on line and face-to-face training resources.
