5.3. Video and Multimedia

For multimedia and video materials - 

  • Ensure your videos are accompanied by a text based transcript and/or closed captions. QMplus Media allows you to add captions automatically.
  • Check your videos can be viewed on desktop computers, tablets and mobile devices. You can use QMplus Media to ensure this.
  • Provide alt text for images, remember to repeat any text within the image in the alt text. (Guidance on ALT text).
  • Provide a description of the image/video with its purpose.
  • Make sure there is no flashing and patterns because bold, regular patterns; or regular moving patterns can cause seizures, hence you should avoid them. Add a disclaimer if they are essential/unavoidable.
