Section Two: Using Disability Services and Accommodations

Captioned Media

De Anza has an on-going program to closed caption instructional videos and media. Online Education courses delivered by video or recorded for future instructional use are also captioned, including live broadcast and web streamed courses.  The Online Education Course schedule marks those courses that are already captioned.

Steps to Request a Captioned Media

Students do not need to initiate requests.

    • Deaf Services works with the instructors of classes that Deaf & Hard of Hearing students have enrolled in to make available, if possible, captioned versions of video and media to be shown in class. 

An interpreter or transcript may be offered, if necessary, as a substitute for a captioned version.
