UW’s AccessComputing helps code.org make their inspirational videos accessible

logosUW’s AccessComputing – the Alliance for Access to Computing Careers – has worked with code.org to make their inspirational videos accessible to blind students by adding audio description. Audio description provides additional audio to the video to describe what is visually happening.  The added audio is in a different voice to distinguish it from the voices in the original video.

AccessComputing, a joint effort by CSE and DO-IT (Disabilities, Opportunities, Internetworking, and Technology) at the University of Washington,  is an NSF-funded alliance with the goal of increasing the participation of students with disabilities, nation-wide, in computing fields.
