Please caption your videos about web accessibility

Seriously. This should be obvious. Why would you make inaccessible videos about accessibility? Yet, I have found this happening more and more lately. I has become very frustrating for me, because some of the videos are great, and I would love to use them in the accessibility training materials I am assembling. However, for reasons that should be obvious, I cannot use inaccessible training materials in a course about accessibility. Some recent examples that come to mind are: Victor Tsaran: An Introduction to Screen Readers” on YUI Theater, the AssistiveWare videos on computer accessibility, and Using ALT attributes smartly on the Official Google Webmaster Central Blog. Come on guys. Practice what you preach.
