Find Accessible Media

This guide helps faculty members and others in the Temple University committee locate ADA compliant media materials for course use.

Captioned DVDs

Captioned DVDs in the library's collection are indicated by the subject term "Video recordings for the hearing impaired".

Many of the DVDs in the CLA Educational Technology center also have closed captions, but the LibrarySearch record does not always indicate the availability of captions.  Please contact Paley Library Media Services ( or the CLA Educational Technology Center's Media Learning Center ( for information about whether a particular title is captioned.

Accessible Online Media Resources

Most of the library's online video databases have captions or transcripts available.  You can search for accessible media through the native interfaces for these databases or through the LibrarySearch.
