We are excited to announce that all MedCom video clips within the Nursing & Allied Health Database now include transcripts. This new feature makes this content more accessible for hearing impaired users.

In addition, the transcripts will make the videos more discoverable in search results and discovery services. Prior to the update, the MedCom videos were harder to find because they lacked the metadata to be surfaced even when users were searching with appropriate terms. 
Please note, with this change the URLs to MedCom videos were changed. If you have bookmarked any, these links will need to be updated to the new version.
