Video captioning services

Videos that you own and are used by students outside of the classroom for instruction should be captioned, especially if they are used in online courses. If you have a student in your course that needs accommodation, Student Disability Services can work with you to caption your material (as well as other content) at no charge. Otherwise there is a charge of about $2/minute to transcribe and caption videos in English. If you already have a transcript, this cost is lower–possibly free.

Captions can be turned on and off by the viewer as shown below. (Use the CC button to toggle captions on and off.)

In addition to making the video accessible, students report that captioned videos help their understanding of material.

Captioning services can be requested using an online form. Normal turnaround time is about 2 working days, but this may increase if the video is long.
