Video requirements

All video content for our website must be created with captions, audio descriptions and a described transcript.

The exceptions are when:

  • captions are not needed because there is no speech or no audio at all
  • audio descriptions are not needed because there is nothing extra to be inferred from the visual information (e.g. if the video is someone talking to camera).

Read about making video and audio accessible on the W3C website.

See our guidance about commissioning video and producing videos for Sussex.


We only use Vimeo for video content. YouTube converts footage differently and its content is blocked in some countries.
