A majority of digital media platforms today display an oversight in resolving the accessibility gap for users who are blind or with low vision. However, the use of ShortScribe introduces improved accessibility features of visual video content by converting them into detailed audio descriptions of varying detail according to users’ individual needs.

This would enhance relevant users’ the flexible ability to better access, comprehend and enjoy such content as they most prefer, thus significantly advancing the quality of accessibility within these media forms.

Other notable features of this program include functions such as video controls for easy navigation, video statistics to track performance metrics, and a displayed screen providing video information such as username of video creator.

With current trends of short video clips only continuing to spread across social media channels, the role of AI in ensuring and improving digital accessibility for all has become more important than ever. The development of ShortScribe presents an example of how AI tools may improve the digital experiences of people with disability, thereby progressing efforts to overcome challenges hindering accessibility in media content today.
