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 and return it to John Cavano, Assistive Technology Instructor, and he will set you up with an account to directly upload videos to 3Play Media for captioning. This service is FREE to you as DSPS and Equity will cover the cost for as long as funds last.
