Checkpoint B.02

Checkpoint B.02 focuses on providing alternative equivalents for live webcasts.

Live Webcasts

Notice: These tiered requirements for live webcasts are specific to the Missouri Information Technology Accessibility Standards.

Requirements for captioning of live Webcasts for the University are being phased in by the summer of 2009. Priority for captioning is given to content which has statewide importance and events that do not provide individual accommodation requests. As a whole, the university must meet the following deadlines for captioning of live webcasts:

  • By June 30, 2005, 10 percent of all live Webcast hours transmitted during the preceding twelve months must have captioning.
  • By June 30, 2007, 25 percent of all live Webcast hours transmitted during the preceding twelve months must have captioning.
  • By June 30, 2009, 50 percent of all live Webcast hours transmitted during the preceding twelve months must have captioning.

Currently we do not have any recommended procedures in providing captioning for live webcasts. For more information regarding this checkpoint contact webmaster@missouristate.edu.
