Closed Captioning Reminder

This is a reminder that to comply with federal regulations, videos made available by public entities must include closed captioning to make them accessible. UNI-related videos produced for external consumption (i.e. posted on social media or website, embedded in emails, etc.) must be closed captioned. Failure to comply with regulations puts the university at risk for potentially serious negative repercussions, including lawsuits. For captioning assistance, please reach out to IT video services by placing a ServiceHub request. Please note, if utilizing YouTube's auto-captioning service, you must ensure captions accurately reflect the content before the captions are considered accessible.
