I have a team who is creating video-based learning courses on using software, and they actually care about accessibility! What are some of the best examples of doing that right? (e.g. not relying on visual characteristics alone, captioning that is appropriate for both the blind and the deaf, &c.)

Steve,

If the video is showing how to bold text in Word - for example. Instead of
saying "ok select your text, go to the top of the window, click the b." You
can say "at the top of the window, you have the ribbon, the bold option is
found in the home tab, in the font group, and uses a capital B to identify
it. Alternatively you can press control and b." Caption that, and now it
would be considered captioned and audio-described

Hi Steve,
May I ask what software your accessibility loving team is using? I am looking for alternatives to Articulate, or way to make Articulate more accessible.

Or if anybody wants to chime in on what they use and like or don’t like I would appreciate the information.

I don't know anything recent about this product, and this response is
not to steer the discussion away from a range of solutions. But I
recently saw this tweet from Articulate, and I posted it to the ATHEN
email list a few days ago.

Maybe it will prove worth investigating.
