Captioned Media & E-Text Print Page

Accessible Media

All media newly acquired by the Library is either closed captioned or permission to caption has been obtained. Currently 50% of the Library’s media collection is closed captioned. Closed captioned media displays the audio content as text on-screen in synchronization with dialogue, narration and sound effects. This feature provides equitable access to media by all students.

In accordance with the regulations of the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA), all Divisions are required to adhere to accessibility standards and principles when designing, adopting and procuring educational materials and resources for the delivery of course curricula.  This includes, but is not limited to, the following:  E-books, course-packs, e-learning platforms, interactive and instructive online learning management systems, audio-visual and multi-media.  The College has a Captioned Media and E-text Policy which stipulates that all media produced or purchased for instructional, informational or marketing purposes must be captioned or permission to caption must be granted as a condition of purchase.  Divisions must allocate a budget for making resources accessible, such as captioning audio-visual media. 

Faculty members may contact the Accessible Media Co-ordinator to review the media used in their curricula to determine if it is closed captioned, if a closed captioned version exists or if a suitable alternative is available. Assistance is available to all members of the College community using audio-visual resources for instructional purposes, college-wide events or websites to facilitate the closed captioning of the material.

Design Meets Disability - Graham Pullin (2009)
ISBN: 9780262162555
Eyeglasses have been transformed from medical necessity to fashion accessory. This revolution has come about through embracing the design culture of the fashion industry. Why shouldn't design sensibilities also be applied to hearing aids, prosthetic limbs, and communication aids? In return, disability can provoke radical new directions in mainstream design.
