Video and Audio

Before publicly available video or audio is posted to a Salisbury University website it must be approved and vetted by an appropriate supervisor and the Publications Office. (Any video or audio that requires a login to access is NOT publicly available and not subject to this rule.) 

In addition to an approval and vetting process, all video should be closed captioned and a transcript provided for audio. Services for providing closed captioning and transcription are available. Rev.com offers closed captioning and transcription at $1.00 per minute of video.
