Introduction

Ivett Csordas recently interviewed me for the Learning Content Accessibility Spotlight, which highlights a different topic every other week to raise awareness about accessibility. Our chat focused on writing accessible copy. You can watch the video on YouTube below.

Here's What We Talked About

  • How writing skills fit in with accessibility
  • Three considerations for writing accessible copy
  • Plain language (and zombies!)
  • Tips for captions and transcripts
  • Tools for checking your copy

I have one small correction to make: In the interview, I said that each line of captions should be 50 characters or fewer. The correct standard is 32 characters or fewer.
