Hi all, 

I am new to the e-learning realm and curious about accessibility for the Rise courses we are building. We are using Docebo; the videos we use in our Instructional Design are primarily downloaded from our company Vimeo account, or our company youtube account. How can I go about ensuring that closed captioning is available for the videos I embed into Rise? Anyone with the insights into Rise and/or Docebo on how to do this? Thanks!

Hello, Lush! Welcome to E-Learning Heroes.

lf you are embedding your own content from Vimeo or YouTube that contains closed captioning, your learners will be able to use the CC icon on the video player. Use the iframe embed code to add those videos to Rise 360 courses.

Let me know if you need more help!

Just to follow up on this too, this thread is over 2 years old now. The stock reply from the Staff that comment on here that there are "no updates yet", or that we are "on the mailing list for updates" are becoming tired and wearing thin. This is basic Accessibility functionality that has been requested for over 2 years by the community, and we haven't even had a confirmation that it is being consdered for development yet. 

I know Articulate don't publicise upcoming updates, which is an understandable way to manage expectations, but can someone please advise us if this is even on a product backlog, or should anyone who has Accessibility requirements just forget that Rise exists and look for an alternate solution  instead?

I think it's ony fair to point out that Rise has had accessibility features added.

Granted it's not CC and I would also find it useful to know what features are being worked on, but it would be unfair to conclude there has been no progress around accessibility.

Having said that, I for one would prefer for a push to get accessibility sorted over development of other new features for Rise. New features are great, but basic functionality which is essential for some people would be more important in my view.

I agree with David. Accessible content should be a given.

Great comment Paul. I absolutely agree with you especially since this is such a basic function. I was surprised the video player was released without caption functionality in the first place, and find it hard to understand why we are still waiting for this. This function should be a top priority for the next feature release.

Alyssa's reply in the Accessibility thread (https://community.articulate.com/discussions/rise-360/accessibility-in-rise?page=13) states

"... our end goal is to get Rise 360 output WCAG 2.1 compliant by the end of 2020."

Carrie asked

"WCAG 2.1 AA?"

Crystal confirmed

"Level AA is the goal!"

WCAG 2.1 AA includes audio description for pre-recorded video (https://www.w3.org/TR/WCAG21/#time-based-media), so hopefully if this timescale is achievable, this would mean it would be in place by the end of 2020.
