Free Video Captioning from DSPS and 3PlayMedia!

If you are showing videos to students, they must be captioned for accessibility. Auto-captions are not accessible as they are frequently lacking punctuation, proper spelling, and complete sentence structure (unless you have manually corrected the captions for accuracy). Disability Support Programs and Services (DSPS) is working with 3Play Media to caption videos, including class lectures, video office hours, old copyrighted videos and promotional videos, in 3-4 days.

Please complete the Captioning Request Form. This service is FREE to you as DSPS and Equity will cover the cost for as long as funds last.

Instructor Accessibility Guide by Pope Tech

The Instructor Accessibility Guide works with Canvas Module Pages, Discussion Pages, Assignment/Quiz Pages, Announcements -and can check the page content that an instructor has created or can edit.  When editing one of these pages in Canvas, you’ll see a “P” button at the bottom of the screen next to “Cancel” and “Save.”  Clicking this button scans your page and opens the accessibility guide on the right-hand side of the screen, highlighting errors and offering suggestions on how to fix them. To see an example of how to use this tool and access a step-by-step guide and video, visit our Faculty & Staff Support Forum Post: New Accessibility Checker in Canvas
