[Athen] Support for Video Captioning Tools and Services

To answer your question, at my university, Student Disability Services provides captions to registered students as an accommodation, and there are other departments on campus that caption other videos the university is using, mostly unrelated to classes.

I’m also wondering if I can ask who people are outsourcing their captioning to, and if you’re happy with the results? I’m doing a LOT of video captioning for students this semester, and although I’ve sent out videos to be captioned in the past I’ve always had to go back through and check the results because I haven’t gotten back accurate captions from anyone, at least not accurate enough that I would feel comfortable offering them as an accommodation without reviewing them first.

Any companies to recommend?

We only provide captioning on an as needed basis. Disability Services funds any captions needed as an accommodation. We outsource to get the actual work done. I agree with you that the funding should be shared.

Greetings All:

I am posting a question regarding captioning tools and services. At your institution, who normally provides financial support for tools or services involved in making online course videos accessible? Are there multiple departments that combine their resources, considering so many benefit from supporting students and improving outcomes?

Looking forward to hearing from you,
