Join us for a drop-in Webinar on TechSmith Relay.
When creating lecture content, it is important to see accessibility as a priority, not an afterthought. The goal of online video lectures is to provide a way of learning for all students, whether they learn better from reading or listening.
Providing accommodations to students with disabilities is required by Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act, which was updated effective January 18, 2018.
As one of the most well-known ways to be accessible, generating captions allows students with hearing impairments to watch videos and follow along by reading the corresponding captions. During this session we will also look at additional benefits that closed captions can provide all learners.
With recent updates to TechSmith Relay's captioning features, adding closed captions to your videos has never been easier. We'll show you how to automatically transcribe your video's audio into captions via the speech-to-text generator, explore the robust caption editor, as well as an option to assign your videos to another user to help with the captioning process. Together we'll walk through several different scenarios for adding captions to your video lessons, so you can see what workflow fits best for you.
