Practices, and How Captioning Benefits All Students
<http://wcet.wiche.edu/connect/video-captioning>,on September 10, will
include live video captioning for those interested in seeing real-time
captioning in play. The webcast includes expert presenters covering
valuable information to help colleges and universities conduct an internal
assessment of who is in charge, how to develop a remediation plan, what
captioning features are needed (e.g. closed captioning, real-time,
transcripting), and what can be learned from Kent State’s and Texas Tech’s
work for providing captioning services to students, faculty, and staff.
