Hi Todd,

Some of our faculty at UCF have used Adobe Connect, which has a free, downloadable caption pod for use by the live captioner, who needs to be contracted with separately. Adobe Connect is not, however, free. Several faculty have used the caption pod and have felt it works fine.

Subject: [Athen] Real-time captioning

We're curious about real-time captioning options for live webcast events. What kinds of solutions are people using for this? I've seen StreamText.net captions used in some webinars and the like-is this the best approach?

Any input is welcome.
