Accessibility: Does Siteimprove check for captioning on videos and other multimedia?

Modified on: Tue, 10 Aug, 2021 at 7:34 AM

Yes, Siteimprove does check for captioning on videos and other multimedia. We check against the following success criteria:

1.2.1 - Video/audio needs alterative


1.2.2 - Multimedia content needs captions


1.2.3 - Multimedia content needs alternative


In our older accessibility product, the above checks are review items, which are issues that cannot be checked automatically but require a manual inspection to determine if each item lives up to the A conformance level.


In our next-generation accessibility product, the checks we provide are semi-automated, which means that validating the issue requires a guided review. You can read more about guided reviews in the article "Accessibility NextGen: Reviewing Potential Issues".
