People who are blind or have low vision: Include in your video a description of yourself and your surroundings.
For Deaf/deaf and Hard of Hearing Communities: Speak clearly so YouTube will transcribe what you say well. Include a Google doc link to the words to songs, poetry, words spoken in your video for people who are Deaf/deaf.
Best to film video horizontally. Have good lighting, check your microphone volume so you are heard, look into the camera. The best size to record at is 1920x1080

Join our fast-growing Disability Unite community in a social media campaign to help raise awareness about the inequities millions of Americans face every day — Americans who are proud and working together to make themselves known. Disability rights are human rights. Everyday citizens, celebrated figures, and people with disabilities are rewriting the age-old narrative that keeps the disability community underrepresented. Every supporter adds to the collective message.
