Better serve the needs of your users and meet today’s increasingly stringent accessibility requirements. Making sure everyone can use your video content also protects your institution from liability. Captions are a major component of accessibility. Automated captions take the stress out of captioning. Just as important, providing an accessible video player ensures viewers will be able to engage with your content. But accessibility goes beyond just content; it’s a mindset. Kaltura sees accessibility not just as a checklist, but as a state of mind.
Kaltura is committed to continuously improving our accessibility capabilities. Accessibility is not a single goal to be achieved; it’s an ever-evolving process as technology changes and understanding grows. Kaltura works with industry partners, clients, and members of the community to keep at the forefront of accessibility for video. This includes striving to fulfill accessibility guidelines such as 508, CVAA, and WCAG 2.0 AA.
Kaltura player features can include:
A Voluntary Product Accessibility Template (VPAT) is a self-disclosing document evaluating how accessible products are according to the Section 508 and WCAG 2.0 regulations. Kaltura’s VPAT was prepared by noted accessibility firm Level Access.
