Morning y'all!

It was -7 here yesterday, yes that is a negative sign. Brrrr.

I would like to put a feeler out there for all folks who are currently using DocSoft captioning services for any of their captioning needs. A little background:

We own a license to DocSoft (have for years) but have never actually put it to use. I'd like to get some information on how other Universities are implementing DocSoft campus-wide.

I attended ATHEN and got some great info there - but am also looking if anyone can share the following info:

* Who "handles" this service? (I.e. Does your disability services office manage the DocSoft portal, or does IT?)
* Who is editing the transcripts?
* Is there a particular workflow that has worked for you that you would be willing to share?
* Is there ever a time when you outsource? If so, what is the reason (I.e. Video is 30 minutes or 1 hour)
* Any other information that you think might be helpful for me as we try to get some traction on this initiative!

Thanks, stay warm!!!!
