Announcements Sonix for teams

Do you have multiple team members collaborating on an audio or video project? Do you work with a video or audio editor? Are you frustrated by all the back-and-forth?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, then you are probably familiar with the tedious process required to get your content publish-ready. That process can include a combination of offline and online messaging through multiple channels like email, text, Slack, phone, or in-person. Your content is all over the place. You can’t find previous audio or footage. Simple tasks take way longer than they should. Yuck.

Look no further. We’ve made some huge improvements to Sonix for teams (Business Plan). Now you can invite users with different permissions to access, edit, or upload content.

 

 

One of the biggest challenges with audio & video content production is navigating the huge amounts of footage and audio. Before Sonix, there wasn’t a great way to store all this content and make it easily searchable. We fixed that. Now anyone on your team can easily search transcripts of video or audio to pinpoint key parts in seconds. Production teams will have every file at their fingertips. Not only that, marketing teams can easily find files / images that can be repurposed into blogs, podcasts, or other web content.

Sonix continues to push the boundaries of audio & video production and distribution. We will continue to re-imagine how people create and share media.

Did you know? A simple guide to understanding the American with Disabilities Act (ADA)

What is the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)?

The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) was signed into law in 1990. The ADA is a civil rights law that prohibits discrimination against individuals with disabilities in all areas of public life, including jobs, schools, and transportation. It prevents discrimination against a group that has historically faced many barriers.

Why does the ADA matter?

The ADA matters for any business because the law states that it is illegal to provide good or services to the public that are not also accessible to people who have disabilities. Not only that, there are over 60 million Americans with disabilities.

Who does it impact?

The ADA impacts any business or government that is providing goods or services to the public. It is one of the most far-reaching pieces of legislation that the US has enacted. However, what is defined as accessible isn’t always clear cut so there can be some grey areas.

How does the ADA handle websites and web accessibility?

Currently the ADA does not explicitly address web accessibility. It has generally been up to lawyers to assess how the ADA applies to websites and online content.

Having said that, the ADA is enforced by the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ). And the DOJ has issued a Supplemental Advanced Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (SANPRM) to incorporate web accessibility into the ADA standards.

The DOJ’s public position was clarified in the following statement made during the Netflix case:

“The Department is currently developing regulations specifically addressing the accessibility of goods and services offered via the web by entities covered by the ADA. The fact that the regulatory process is not yet complete in no way indicates that web services are not already covered by title III.”

These ADA guidelines for web access will continue to change over time and prevailing wisdom is that the ADA extends to online content.

What happens if I’m not compliant with the ADA?

Most complaints related to the ADA are generated by individuals with disabilities, their families or disability-rights organizations. There are times when the DOJ initiates an investigation but it is not common. If you receive an ADA related complaint to your organization you may get sued. It’s best to talk to your lawyer.

It should also be noted that the ADA does not have a team of inspectors. It is up to businesses and governments to comply with its requirements proactively.

What’s the best way for Podcasters to be ADA compliant?

If you are a podcaster or you create audio lectures, you should provide a transcript of the words being said. The transcript should be accessible online or by download.

What’s the best way for video producers to be ADA compliant?

If your business creates videos those videos should have closed captions. Captions should be time-synced to the speech. You should also make sure you are using a media player that can be controlled by the keyboard.

What is the least expensive and easiest way to make my website ADA compliant?

Creating transcripts and captions manually is the least expensive way but not the easiest. The easiest and least expensive way is to use an automated transcription service.

What is automated transcription and captioning?

Automated transcription is the conversion of audio and video into text using machines. There are several companies that provide this service. Below is a list of services ranked in terms of accuracy and price1.
