Abstract: Researchers worked with a group of students from the Media Foundation program to determine how best to make video content in their courses universally inclusive and accessible. This investigation explored how learning to caption video affected the students’ perception of the importance of inclusive video content.

Film and Television students Alex Valliancourt and Julian Zakrzewski made a documentary about their experience in two workshops created and facilitated by Charles Silverman from the Ryerson School of Disability Studies, a co-investigator on the study. The workshops introduced participants to captioning video for inclusive design.
