Comply With WCAG on a Video Platform Powered by AI

Ensure WCAG compliance of your marketing videos, live streams & virtual events for internal or external use with built-in tools for making your content accessible, inclusive and easy to handle.

Making video content accessible

WCAG is a series of web accessibility guidelines for designing and developing web products and services. We offer AI-generated speech-to-text functionality alongside the opportunity to add a second live or recorded video stream where you can invite a sign language interpreter to translate allowing you to further comply with accessibility guidelines.

It's more important than ever to make sure your video content is inclusive to all, so you want to make sure you're choosing a streaming platform that won't exclude any of your potential customers. From subtitles to colour contrasts, Quickchannel is committed to helping you scale your reach and maximise engagement with digital experiences that are accessible to all audiences and is focused on compliance with WCAG 2.1 Level AA.

WCAG guidelines for streaming and recorded video content

WCAG provide recommendations on how to increase the usability of your website content and make it more accessible to everyone. Quickchannel’s player meets the following guidelines to ensure your videos are compliant: 

  • Ensure colour contrast in your video and presentation for better viewability.
  • Enable navigation of the video player via keyboard.
  • Provide a good navigational hierarchy to ensure seamless access and user experiences.
  • Write descriptions that explain visuals (images and video) and enable the use of a screen reader.
  • Use words that are easy to understand and a clear language.
  • Avoid animations and recorded video material that can cause seizures.
  • Upload captions and audio descriptions for your VOD’s and recorded lives.

Reach more of your audience

For people with visual or hearing impairments, consuming video content can be a daunting feat and without being WCAG compliant many people are open to being unfairly excluded from content and participation. When applying WCAG to corporate video streaming your content should be produced and delivered in ways that ensure that all members of the audience can access, participate and fully engage with your content. 

When you choose Quickchannel you can be secure in knowing that your video content will be fully compliant with WCAG on a corporate video platform powered by AI.
