Making Podcasting Accessible (ADA compliant)

There are ways of making podcasts more accessible. Accessibility makes your content available or easier to access for everyone, including people with disabilities. Taking steps to make podcasts more accessible is good design practice and also complies with the Federal ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) guidelines.

  • Create your podcast as a web page with links to the audio (or video) files and links to the PDF files. The CSULB TechTips podcast follows this practice.
  • Also make you video podcast as a web page with FLASH (YouTube style) video that includes synchronized closed captioning.
  • Include captioning as part of the video you publish in your video podcasts (vodcasts). Instructions on how to accomplish this with Quicktime Pro are provided by podcasting guru Donna Eyestone as episode 43 of her podcast "Educational Podcasts." To view this informative episode, launch iTunes, click on the iTunes Store and enter Donna Eyestone in the search field.
