Hello Dawn,

Caption them. Reasons:

1. UA's Facebook page appears to be used in support of your student life, student activities and student recruitment.
2. These videos originated from UA (vs third party), and seem well planned and executed (vs spontaneous).
3. Title II is clear applying to all programs of a school or college, including academics, extracurricular, athletics, and off-campus activities.

Happy Monday Everyone!

The University of Arizona is working on captioning media, like other campuses across the nation. We are starting with our public media first…. This weekend, UA posted a video on their Facebook page. It captured my attention because it is about a Paralympian who works in our office and it already has over 12,000 views (https://www.facebook.com/uarizona/videos/10153626507568310/).

So – my question: What, if anything, are you doing to caption social media posts? What process do you have employed to ensure captions are added, since posting on social media tends to be more “spontaneous” than Website postings?
