Greetings ATHEN Community,

Thank you for sharing the notes from the ATHEN membership meeting last
week. The National Deaf Center on Postsecondary Outcomes (NDC
<https://www.nationaldeafcenter.org/>) had an opportunity to review the
notes and wanted to offer some responses to the questions/concerns related
to access for deaf students.

NDC has seen these questions and others, raised by several professionals.
We have been sharing responses to commonly asked questions weekly through
our FAQ Your Questions, Answered
<https://www.nationaldeafcenter.org/covid19faqs>. Though we encourage you
to review the page for additional information, we have collected the most
relevant questions and answers to the comments posted:


Can I use the “captions” feature or auto-captions during live online
video rooms or for recorded videos?

How can I add live-stream captioning within online meetings or Learning
Management Systems (LMS) platforms, such as Canvas, Blackboard, or Zoom?

How can I create transcripts for captioning media from auto-captions?

What are some considerations when planning for an accessible, virtual
commencement for deaf participants?

How do you pin the interpreter or live-stream captioning window across
different video conferencing platforms (e.g., Zoom, WebEx, Microsoft Teams,
etc)? <https://www.nationaldeafcenter.org/covid19faqs#PinInterpreter>

NDC has additional information and guidance for professionals, educators
and students impacted by COVID-19

frequently adding content and encourage you to check back often for the
most updated information. Some of the resources you will find on that page
