Introduction to Captioning: Make your videos more accessible and get your audience more engaged with captions

  1. Tuesday, February 23rd, 202110:00am - 11:15am

Captions offer time-synced text presentations of the audio content in videos, and are increasingly used by audiences across education, community outreach, social media, marketing, and more. In this session, we’ll introduce the value of accurate captions for accessibility and engagement, define some terminology for captioning, discuss best practices and tips, and provide a quick survey of some campus tools that can be used to create and refine your own captions. We'll share how to use scripts and auto-captioning as foundations for your captions and finish the session with a demonstration of how to produce accurate captions using the auto-captioning and correction features in a few available tools.
