Accessibility Requirements for Course Content
Best Practices for Creating Accessible Documents, Presentations, and ANGEL Content (See individual instructions for software specific guidelines):
PREZI is not ADA/508 compliant (i.e., does not work with a screen-reader).
DSPS is the primary resource to aid faculty with the accessibility of their course content. They facilitate the closed captioning of video content (which often qualifies for DECT grant funding - see below) and can also provide information regarding assistive technology and the tools faculty can use to create accessible course content.
If you have questions about accessibility, please contact the Alternate Media Specialist, Mike Denne @ 408-855-5384; or DSPS Program Specialist, Nan Biltz @ 408-855-5086.
The Distance Education Captioning and Transcription grant (DECT) provides CCCs with funding for live and asynchronous captioning and transcription as a means of enhancing the access of all students to distance education courses.
ALL online and hybrid classes qualify, as well as college-generated lecture capture content. YouTube video content is also included within the parameters of the DECT grant funding, provided it is required viewing for the course.
Contact Mission College DSPS Alternate Media personnel, Mike Denne, x5384, for assistance with this process.
