Submit Your Educational Media and Become a DCMP Accessible Content Partner
Because of COVID-19, we’ve all begun using educational media that support remote learning. Educators are seeking online content, and many are creating their own. Content that is accessible to students who are deaf and blind is difficult to find.
Have you created educational content and want to make sure it is accessible? The Described and Captioned Media Program is currently accepting submissions for media that is appropriate for families and educators with K-12 students who are deaf or blind. Whether it’s remote learning content, health and safety information, YouTube creator content, ASL videos, or something else, we’d like to help. This includes high-quality educator-created remote learning resources in any curricular area.
Submissions will be evaluated by DCMP. If selected, your content will be made accessible by adding captions and audio description, at no cost to you, in return for permission to distribute it on our secure and accessible content delivery platform on a non-exclusive basis. If your content is selected, you will be contacted by DCMP to discuss usage rights and other details. All forms of media may be submitted. Content should not be state- or region-specific.

DCMP provides both Open Educator Resource (OER) media that is openly available, and member-only content as distribution options for content creators. Families and educators with an early learner through Grade 12 student who is deaf, hard of hearing, blind, visually impaired, or deaf-blind qualify for free membership. DCMP is funded by the U.S. Department of Education, and there are no costs associated with any of our services.
