Hello fellow ATHEN members;

Do those of you involved in alternative formats have any guidelines for
captioning? The media production dept that we deal with here on campus
is looking for some guidelines when they do the work or hire someone
else to do it.

I do know that NCAM has captioning guidelines at

However, I am wondering if your university or alt. media center has
their own guidelines or different ones.

Many thanks,
