DIY Closed Captioning & Creating Accessible Digital Content

Monday, March 8, 2021
10:00am – 11:00am

Other
Online

We will discuss best practice when captioning and will explore two applications (Kaltura and YouTube) that can be used to create closed captions for your videos. Both use computer-generated captioning which often requires that captions be edited by the video owner to improve accuracy. Research has shown that closed captions can benefit all learners as they watch the video content. Learn more about it here: https://er.educause.edu/articles/2017/8/a-rising-tide-how-closed-captions-can-benefit-all-students. In addition, we’ll explore tools that you can use to make your documents accessible such as tagging images, using styles in Microsoft Word, etc. Once registered and if you will be attending via online please plan to join 10 minutes before the session begins to make sure you connect successfully.
