Accessible Video Captioning: Regis University Case Study

Published on

Accessing Higher Ground - November 7, 2013

Accessibility Data:

- More than 1 billion people have a disability
- 56.7 million report a disability in the U.S.
- 48 million (20%) in the U.S. have some hearing loss
- 11% of postsecondary students report having a disability
- 45% of 1.6 million veterans seek disability
- 177,000+ veterans claimed hearing loss

Captions are text that is time-sychronized with the media. They convey all spoken content as well as relevant sound effects. Captions originated in the early 1980s from an FCC mandate for broadcast TV.

The 21st Century Communications and Video Accessibility Act requires all Internet programming that previously aired on television with captions to have captions online, as well.

The values of captioning include:
- Accessibility for deaf and hard of hearing
- Accessibility for ESL viewers
- Flexibility to view anywhere, such as noisy environments or offices
- Search
- Reusability
- Navigation, better UX
- SEO/discoverability
- Used as source for translation

Regis University has 475 courses online, and roughly 60% include video. They feel they have a duty to caption all video content for accessibility. All multimedia files have synchronized captions and/or provide transcripts for media.

Their original captioning process was a nightmare. With Kaltura and 3Play Media, the captioning process is fully integrated and automated. They simply tag their videos for captioning with 3Play Media, and within 2 days the professional quality captions appear in their videos.
