The big thing to remember with DocSoft is that most of the time your
transcripts will need editing (if you are using them as an accommodation for
a student). As long as you go into the process not expecting 100%
recognition 100% of the time, you will be a lot happier.

Greetings, all. Northern Arizona University is using DocSoft, and Jamie
Axelrod, Director of Disability Resources, has said he'd be happy to talk
with anyone about it, although it's pretty dense and detailed to write up.
His email is Jamie.axelrod at nau.edu; please contact him directly if you would
like to arrange a conversation.

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

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!!!!
