Example Renée Renée is deaf and watches a video interview. The interviewer is out of the picture and atmospheric images are used to dress up the video. Because the speakers are almost out of the picture, the possibility of lip reading is no longer available. Renée could have followed this entire conversation if subtitles had been added. Now Renée clicks the Thailand Phone Number List interview away. Inclusiveness is therefore highly desirable. For government agencies and semi-government institutions, digital accessibility of their content is even mandatory. The same goes for video content. For this purpose, the Temporary Decree on digital accessibility of the government was established on 1 July 2018 . This Decree stipulates that websites and mobile apps of Dutch government agencies must meet accessibility requirements.
These authorities must post an accessibility statement, in which they are accountable. Even if it is not (yet) mandatory for the private sector to follow the guidelines, there are plenty of reasons to do so. You want everyone with or without a disability to see what is Thailand Phone Number List happening in your video, right? After all, you have spared no expense or effort for the production. Example Robin Robin is visually impaired and follows a webinar. There is an extensive discussion between four people at the table. Because no audio description has been added and the people at the table have not introduced themselves by name and position, Robin has no idea who is speaking when. In this way Robin cannot place who mentions which arguments. Robin loses interest, gets distracted and decides not to continue following the webinar.
Win/win for SEO There are other reasons for businesses to improve the accessibility of video communication. Adding accessibility elements significantly improves the findability of your content. Google is blind. Search engines cannot read the content of a Thailand Phone Number List video, which makes videos less easy to find. By uploading a video description and separate subtitles, Google can suddenly find your content. A win-win situation, right? Google is blind. Search engines cannot read the content of a video, which makes videos less easy to find. Finally, these extras also add a lot for viewers without disabilities. Everyone sometimes looks on social media, without wanting to turn on the sound. In a quiet compartment or in a noisy environment, a video with subtitles is therefore very nice.
