They got sued over an accessibility issue?
Norman Buchwald

They're naughty on ADA Compliance. Right? :)

YouTube Studio does have an edit feature. :) So there should be little excuse for awkward auto captions.

Most people are not doing audio descriptions, though.

Totally. Was recently wheelchair bound after surgery, there are some alarming physical accessibility challenges on campus!
Romelia Salinas
32:30
Hi Cynthia! Hope you are doing better now.
Cynthia Orozco
32:44
Hi Romelia, yes thank you!
James Wiser
32:56
Also, anyone pushing a stroller with a small human or two. Amazing how difficult it is to get around and how that experience opens one’s eyes to the mobility challenged.
Megan Kinney
35:04
When did WCAG 2.1 come out again?
Evelyn Lord
35:29
June 2018
Megan Kinney
35:33
Thx!
Stephanie Roach
38:18
Do you know when WCAG 2.2 is coming?
Norman Buchwald
39:03
Well, this is one question for James. How many of our vendors safely at 2.1 right now vs. "striving towards"?
Stephanie Roach
39:18
Thanks!
James Wiser
39:49
All depends on what you mean by safely at.
James Wiser
40:20
A lot of vendors even say they are at 2.0 but if you look at the VPATs they have several “meets with exceptions” items.
James Wiser
40:37
And none even claim to be at 2.1. Gale and EBSCO say they’re working towards.
Norman Buchwald
41:59
That's what I thought but it had to be asked since theoretically they've now had almost two years. :) Am I surprised? No. :)
James Wiser
42:35
To get streaming video products to 2.1 is herculean.
Norman Buchwald
45:47
For institutions that don't have a content management system yet for the college-wide website on your campus, here's your ammunition as to why that is important. :)
Norman Buchwald
55:46
URL for that Santa Monica College Canvas apps page?

Hello, will you be covering databases today, especially how to assist a blind student navigate them to find articles?
Roseann Erwin
01:10:30
It would be great to know which databases were deemed inaccessible by the lawsuit
Sean Keegan
01:10:33
Canvas - https://cccaccessibility.org/web/canvas-accessibility/accessible-content-in-canvas
James Wiser
01:10:49
Gale and JSTOR were specifically mentioned
James Wiser
01:11:17
Ironically Gale is one of the best on this front. Again, no library database is currently WCAG 2.0 or 2.1 without exceptions.
James Wiser
01:11:30
JSTOR is and has always been one of the poorest performers.
Roseann Erwin
01:11:35
Thank you!
Linda Braiman
01:12:19
Eventhough Gale will make accessible copies for free?
Stephanie Roach
01:13:12
Will the CCC Accessibility Center be adding information to support library staff and faculty in helping make library database or website content more accessible?
Stephanie Roach
01:13:33
(To their support center / website)
Tom Stough
01:13:58
Thank you!
April Cunningham -- Library
01:13:59
That will be great, Sean!
Norman Buchwald
01:14:16
I suspect the issue with Gale may be the videos included or was it actually the articles/PDF? (ProQuest seems to have a larger issue on videos if you ever look at a Central trial. I still see non-captioned videos sometimes still coming up).
James Wiser
01:14:30
Videos and PDFs
Jonathon Lee
01:14:56
We've been denied renewal for example of DSM-5 online due to their non-WCAG 2.1 compliance. It seems though that there's room for alternative adaptation I wonder if our contracts procurement specialists are reading the Payan judgment too literally (or misreading it entirely)?
James Wiser
01:15:27
Again, to get videos up to WCAG standards is tough. You can’t just caption what is spoken. You have to have descriptors of all activities on screen. That will be colossally expensive and time consuming.
Jonathon Lee
01:15:33
I'm very afraid that each of our renewals will be denied in a domino effect
Stephanie Roach
01:15:51
@JonathanLee With DSM-5 can you provide alternative coverage from print version?
Stephanie Roach
01:16:06
yes
Norman Buchwald

Jonathon Lee
01:16:11
I hear you
Norman Buchwald

Nena may have been right about the apocalypse, then. ;)
Frances Hui
01:24:45
Hello All, if anyone has worked with students who use screen readers to navigate databases and has any tips to share, I would appreciate hearing from you. Thanks!
Evelyn Lord
01:26:52
Great presentation, Sean! Thank you.
Andy Mezynski
01:26:56
So, if we can't provide full accessibility, we need resources to provide accommodations right?
Sean Keegan
01:27:03
@Frances - I will see if we can get some of that information on our website. That’s a great idea.
Michelle Ohnstad
01:27:20
