Transcription for ADA Compliance
The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), a federal anti-discrimination statute designed to ensure equal access to opportunities and benefits for qualified individuals with disabilities, mandates that communication with individuals with disabilities must be as effective as communications with others.
Captioning improves comprehension for all viewers, especially for those with English as a second language. Captioning is a key element of Universal Design for educational material. Additionally, augmenting an auditory experience with captions more than doubles the retention and comprehension levels. (Gary Robson, The Closed Captioning Handbook )
Title III of the ADA requires the provision of auxiliary aids to ensure effective communication including open and closed captioning. Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 states that educational programs must be accessible to individuals with disabilities. “The issue is not whether the student with the disability is merely provided access, but the issue is rather the extent to which the communication is actually as effective as that provided to others.” (Office of Civil Rights (OCR) Docket No. 09-95-2206, January 25, 1996)
