A woman stands next to a large television screen that shows Judith Heumann delivering a TED talk. The video has captions on the screen.

A program at the U.S. Department of State captions thousands of videos. For example, it has videos on how to apply for U.S. visas, or about education exchange programs. Meanwhile, the program has provided captions in 70 languages. Additionally, it can caption live programming in two languages. In other words, it can produce and display captions for a live program being broadcast online. Furthermore, some offices within the Department of State have started producing their own captions for their own videos. As a result, the U.S. Department of State captions many of its online videos.

The website is accessible for people using screen reading software with minimal difficulty.
