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.
