- Check with the Learning Resource Center (LRC) for a closed-captioned version of your
video. Library staff may be able to assist in finding a substitute title.
- Free closed-captioned videos are also available through many websites, ie. PBS.org.
(Please check the captioning for accuracy before showing the video in class or online.)
If a closed-captioned version is not available at the LRC, place a request to purchase
a captioned version of your video through your department secretary.
- If a captioned version of your video is not available through any of the above resources,
please email your captioning request to Nancy Hernandez at email@example.com the semester before you need the video. Very short videos can be captioned onsite.
Assuming funding is available, longer videos will be sent to an off-campus captioning
company. (Note: It takes about 4 hours to caption a 10 minute video onsite.)
We will need to know:
- - Do you have copy right permission from the publisher to caption video(s)?
- - What is the format? (VHS, DVD, thumb drive, Youtube – Is it your own clip?)
