Creating Closed Captions for Video Materials Provided to Students and Staff at FAU

Florida Atlantic University provides an online captioning appliance to assist faculty and staff in creating Closed Captions for video content that is distributed and viewed by members of the FAU community. This provides essential accessibility for individuals who are Deaf or Hard of Hearing. The Docsoft captioning appliance allows the video creator to upload video or audio files which can then be processed to create an automated transcript. This transcript can then be edited to provide maximum accuracy and it can be output in many different caption file formats for use in such areas as the Canvas Learning Management System. Video and text tutorials are provided to guide you through the caption creation process and assistance can be provided by contacting Student Accessibility Services (SAS).
