This size is a great choice for instructional videos, how-to’s, Q&As, or for introducing staff or students.
For tours of facilities, narrative videos, art films, animations, or feature length videos, you may want to consider using the larger size below.

ALL videos and media should have closed captions and transcripts. The captions and transcripts should provide both the spoken information as well as any sounds that are vital for understanding the content. Video transcripts should also include a description of the visual content that is important to understanding the content as a whole.
Captions and transcripts allow those who are hard of hearing or deaf to watch media presentations and understand the content. Captions provide the portion of the content that is available through an audio track. Captions will not only consist of dialogue, but also identify the speaker and include various non-spoken information including but not limited to meaningful sound effects – like “footsteps approaching, knock on door.”
Captions are not necessary when the synchronic media itself is an alternate presentation of content that is given through text on the web page.
The main benefit is that people who are deaf or hard of hearing will have access to the auditory information or content within the synchronic media through the captions that are provided.
