Accommodations for learners with disabilities

Coursera is committed to ensuring that learners with visual and hearing impairments, as well as other disabilities, are able to succeed in courses on our platform.

You can read more on our accessibility policy page.

Accommodations for hearing impairments

All lecture videos have native language closed-caption subtitles. You can also download the subtitles to read as a transcript.

Accommodations for visual impairments

Most pages and features on Coursera are compatible with these screen readers:

  • JAWS (Windows)
  • NVDA (Windows)
  • VoiceOver (iOS and Mac)
  • TalkBack (Android)

Accommodations for learning disabilities

If you need more time to complete an assignment, you can save it as a draft and return to it later. Late submissions don’t affect your grade in public courses, but may affect your peer reviews.

You can retake quizzes and rewatch videos as many times as you need. You can also download videos to watch offline and download video transcripts to read. If you need more time to complete a course, you can reset your deadlines.

Accommodation policies may differ for learners in private groups, like degree or enterprise learners. If you're taking a course as part of a degree or through another program and require accommodations for a learning disability, consult with your program administrators or your university’s disability office.

Request accommodations in a course

To request additional accommodations, please contact Coursera support. When you contact us to request accommodations, please include:

  • A specific request for a modification that would help you
  • Links to up to two active courses for which you'd like accommodations

If you are a learner in a private group, like degree or enterprise learners, please also send this request to your program administrator as the process for requesting accommodations may differ.
