Accessibility: Does Siteimprove check for captioning on videos and other multimedia?

Gugga HC avatar


Yes, Siteimprove does check for captioning on videos and other multimedia. We check against the following success criteria:

1.2.1 - Video/audio needs alterative

1.2.2 - Multimedia content needs captions

1.2.3 - Multimedia content needs alternative

In our older accessibility product, the above checks are review items, which are issues that cannot be checked automatically but require a manual inspection to determine if each item lives up to the A conformance level.

In our next-generation accessibility product, the checks we provide are semi-automated, which means that validating the issue requires a guided review. You can read more about guided reviews in the article "Accessibility NextGen: Reviewing Potential Issues".

Note: Information on our current next-generation Accessibility product can be found in Learn more about Accessibility NextGen
