Berkeley Takes Down Videos over ADA Violations

Berkeley is claiming that they have to remove a lot of online videos because captioning them all would be too expensive.

To which I say: Please build accessibility into everything you do. Deaf people, in fact, have the right to learn. And please don't blame disabled people when your lack of foresight means you're in violation of the law.

Also, Inside Higher Ed - Berkeley is the mothership of the Independent living movement. There are disabled profs and organizations you should have, and could have, contacted for comment here.
