Audio and video captioning for accessibility


Captioning is a verbatim rendering of the words, speech sounds and non-speech sounds that appear with the visual recording in synchronized fashion. Captioning makes it possible for people who are deaf or hard of hearing to access audio information.

IT provides captioning services (to DCMP Guidelines) for audio recordings, video and screencasts. The Office of Disability Equity provides similar services for courses with identified students. (We do not provide "live" captioning - also known as voice to text, real-time transcription although we can talk with you about excellent local resources. Please allow for a seven day turnaround once your request is submitted
