Modernizing Accessibility Terminology

Media should be accessible for everyone, everywhere. But how do we continuously work towards ensuring accessibility services like closed captioning and audio description are as inclusive as possible?  

Modernizing Accessibility Terminology discusses how our teams in Prerecorded Captioning and Description assembled task forces to evaluate stylistic best practices and terminology surrounding identities, and we detail many of the exciting updates and findings in these areas.
