Auditory and Motor Disabilities

Online Strategies

Auditory Overview

  • Provide transcripts for audio clips.
  • Provide synchronous captioning and transcripts for video clips.

Motor Overview


  • Since learners may not be able to use the mouse, ensure all functions are available from the keyboard (for example, tabbing from link to link). This is also critical for students using voice-activated software.
  • If learners have difficulty controlling the mouse or the keyboard, creating small links or moving links will be problematic.
  • Provide a method for skipping over long lists of links or other lengthy content.
