Offer alternatives if a recording consists solely of audio. Users who cannot hear audio recordings should have the option of accessing the content via an alternative representation.

Tips for creating accessible audio recordings

  • Offer a text-based script or some other form of presentation that does not exclude visitors who are unable to hear the recording.
  • Remember to speak clearly and at a moderate pace.
  • Ideally carry out test recordings before recording a podcast, for example. Poor placement of microphones and distracting background noises can make it difficult to follow the audio.
