People who are deaf or hard of hearing communicate in many ways. Some rely on visual information, such as captions and sign language. Others will use their residual hearing to listen to audio information – often using some kind of assistive listening device. In addition to captions, consider providing a version of the video with an American Sign Language (ASL) interpreter.

Learn what reading poor-quality captions can be like for people with hearing loss and how accurate, high-quality captions can be more inclusive of people who are deaf and hard of hearing.
