The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) requires captioning for media published to the web or presented in class or at other University events. Captioning is a verbatim rendering of the words, speech sounds and non-speech sounds that appear with the visual recording in synchronized fashion. Captioning makes it possible for people who are deaf or hard of hearing to access audio information.
Disabiity Services for Students and IT provide captoning services (to DCMP Guidelines) for audio recordings, video and screencasts. (We do not provide "live" captioning - also known as voice to text, real-time transcription although we can talk with you about an excellent local resources for this.)
To request service
Fill out the captioning request form or contact Janet Sedgley at 243-5452.
