WETHERSFIELD, Conn. (AP) — Connecticut's Department of Motor Vehicles is adding more podcasts and videos to its website.
The department says the multimedia offerings will give drivers an alternative to reading about its services.
Commissioner Melody Curry says an audio or video explanation sometimes can be easier to understand. She says they also can be a benefit to people with certain disabilities.
The first video to be posted is a two-minute explanation of the steps to renew a motor vehicle registration. The DMV says it plans to add more in the coming months.
DMV's audio-visual section also includes an audio version of the state's driver's manual and links to its podcasts series on topics including traffic signs and the dangers of text messaging while driving.
