Accessible Media: Supports All Senses
People can understand and use information contained in media, such as images, audio, video, animation, and presentations.
Images and media can be effective in conveying concepts and bringing information to life. However, visual and audio materials rely on vision and hearing, and content creators are encouraged to ensure information is provided in an additional format, so it is available to all users.
When content creators provide accessible media:
- Alternatives are provided to make the information in the images and media available to everyone.
- Images and media are used purposefully, as an effective mode of communicating relevant information.
