Across Yahoo, we strive to ensure that everyone can enjoy our products, which are designed to be inclusive from their first release. Earlier this year, we announced that we will ramp up captioning efforts and commit to featuring closed captions on 100% of new user-facing video, including partner content, that is streamed on our own video players going forward. In support of advocacy work, we donated $5M in media to a number of disability organizations, including the National Association of the Deaf, the American Council of the Blind, and the American Association of People with Disabilities. At all times, we’re guided by our users.
We provide access to all things you. Your stocks, your teams, your emails. Accessibility is part of our everyday process, so you can access the world you love every day.
