Provide alternatives for live audio.
Some users with hearing impairments may rely on alternatives to enjoy live audio-only content.
How to Pass
- Add captions to live audio; or
- If the live broadcast is from a prepared script, make the script text available from near the original content.
To add live captions to an audio broadcast, you will need professional software and a trained operator. This isn’t a job you can accurately perform without training.
If you can use live video instead, many live streaming platforms now offer auto captions.
