Usability for All: Video Captioning Techniques and Best Practices
Join Ken Petri from the Web Accessibility Center for a demonstration covering a range of simple techniques to create and present captioned video. After a brief introduction to video captioning and an overview of its benefits, we will explore ways to get an accurate transcription and create the synchronized caption track. You will learn how to present captioned video to your users in various ways including iTunes and on the web, via YouTube, and in web page-embedded players. We will also look at some of the new features in Camtasia Studio that attempt to simplify captioning of screen recordings.
This session is a mix of demonstration with hands-on experience. You are welcome to bring your own laptop or use the computers provided to follow along if you wish.
This session is part of a “Usability for All” series of workshops presented by the Web Accessibility Center and the Digital Union. Strategies and techniques presented in this series will help you improve the general usability and accessibility of your course materials in Carmen and elsewhere.
