Best Practices

What does the viewer absolutely need to know?

  • Content must be simple, bold, legible and brief.
  • Use simple, concise text for quick comprehension.

Choose simple fonts.

  • Select large, bold fonts that can be easily read from a distance.
  • Use all caps for emphasis only.

Use vibrant color!

  • Dark backgrounds are easy on the eye.
  • Outlines or drop shadows can increase readability.

Contrasting colors!

  • Using contrasting colors make the message pop.

Let the image do the talking.

  • “Reading” graphics takes less concentration than text.
  • Graphics minimize language barriers.

Video/audio captioning

Captioning of video/audio materials is necessary to make content accessible to all students, including those with disabilities. Captions are text displayed on the screen to represent what is being said, as well as important sound cues.

To see if your video already has a captioned version available contact

If a captioned version is not available:

  • For instructional audio/video materials, captioning support is available. Submit a request for captioning. Requests submitted will be reviewed and prioritized as they come in based on a variety of factors including, but not limited to, a need for accommodations, video type, course type, timeline needed, etc.
  • Kaltura MediaSpace has machine captioning available as well (See MediaSpace section above). If using machine captioning, please ensure the automated captions are edited and reviewed for accuracy.
