Video Description

A video featuring Brenna Smith, a young white woman, standing in front of a historical exhibit displaying images of Deaf schools and Deaf printers.


This website aims to meet W3C web design standards. The project is built using the Omeka platform and Thanks Roy theme, which incorporate ARIA landmarks, skippable navigation menu, and semantic HTML5 markup for greater accessibility when navigating the site without a mouse or with a screenreader. We have undertaken to include metadata for visual content. Both images and videos include textual descriptions. Videos are captioned in English, available within the HTML5 video player. Separate transcripts are available with video descriptions.
