With all the media available today, descriptive transcripts are more important than ever to make accessibility possible. Whether you’re recording an interview, working on a podcast, transcribing a recorded meeting, producing an accessible webinar, or posting videos on social media, descriptive transcriptions are a valuable resource to make your media available to everyone.

Transcripts are used in more ways than most people realize — and by many more people than you might expect! Descriptive transcripts provide many features that automated captions do not, and they can be required by accessibility law (even if they are often overlooked). Learn how, why, and where to use descriptive transcripts and make the most of your media!
