Speaking the Same Language: Making Closed Captioning Work

September 15st, 2016. 1:00pm to 2:30pm Central Time

The low cost and ease of creating online video content have increased the prevalence of videos available to users online. While no one intentionally designs multimedia content to be inaccessible, multimedia content on the web today often lacks accurate captions. This webinar will explore the free and low-cost tools available to assist users with captioning online video content. Attendees will learn the basic technical components of how to create captions, the standard guidelines for formatting captions and how to use online tools to help streamline the captioning process.
