We only allow captioned videos. By default, the equipment in the classroom has captioning turned on. There are instructions in the classroom for the faculty to leave it that way and instructions on how to turn it on if it is off, ..... but you probably have guessed that faculty compliance is an issue.

I'm not familiar with anything that says captioning must be turned on by default, but that's how we roll.

Subject: [Athen] Opening captions required in classrooms


I was informed that videos which are shown in classrooms must have captions (and I believe that the captions have to be turned on by default). Does anyone know of the legislation which support this?
