Accessibility Features on Video Calls

BlueJeans online meeting accessibility features enable customers with disabilities such as visual and hearing impairment to attend and participate in a BlueJeans video call from any computer or mobile device. These enhancements to the service are based on the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0 and the 21st Century Communications & Video Accessibility Act requirements and are made in order to expand BlueJeans’ accessibility to customers with disabilities.

Customer Showcase : Valdosta State University

Valdosta had a need for an accessible video conferencing solution that provided all students with equal access to campus programs and activities. By leveraging BlueJeans, they now host over 30 hrs of weekly video courses, with a majority of these classes teaching American Sign Language.

Accessibility Standards Supported:

Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG 2.0)

WCAG 2.0 covers recommendations for making Web content more accessible to a wide range of people with disabilities. BlueJeans adopted the WCAG 2.0 requirements for development, testing and conformance of its browser client, iOS app, and Android app.

The 21st Century Communications and Video Accessibility Act (CVAA)

The 21st Century Communications and Video Accessibility Act of 2010 focuses on ensuring that communications and media services, content, equipment, emerging technologies and new modes of transmission are usable and accessible to users with disabilities.

BlueJeans’ enhanced services are now compatible with standard screen readers such as VoiceOver on iOS and OSX platforms, TalkBack on Android devices and NVDA (Non Visual Desktop Access) for Windows platform.
