  • Media has a text alternative available in the post caption
  • Media does not rely on video or audio to present essential information
  • Videos have captions and audio descriptions available (auto-captions have been reviewed and edited for clarity)
  • Videos have audio descriptions

Details are available at Video and Audio Content accessibility resources.

Media Captions and Descriptions

  • Captions accurately reflect the purpose of the post
  • Hashtags use camel case (for example, #MakeAccessibleContent)
  • Emojis are used decoratively and sparingly (screen readers read emoji descriptions out loud. Emoji spam can be frustrating for users)
