Published on

With the proliferation of education video, captioning has become an essential part of many university accessibility policies. Although captioning is sometimes perceived as obtrusive and expensive, in this session University of Florida and Regis University demonstrate their cost-effective, streamlined captioning workflows that provide push-button simplicity for instructors and administrators campus-wide.

Watch this session to learn about the efficient and cost-effective ways to implement video captioning solutions. We will also cover the basics of how to create closed captions, accessibility laws, captions formats including emerging formats for HTML5 and mobile, video player compatibility, and automated workflows with Kaltura.

This session was part of the Kaltura Education Video Summit held on December 6, 2012.
