In this session, University of Wisconsin- Madison discusses their accessibility policy, budgeting, prioritization, costs and benefits derived, and best practices for deploying video captioning technologies.
3Play Media was awarded a state-wide captioning contract with UW System in 2010. 3Play Media provides video transcripts and captions for 26 campuses across the state and one extension program.
Like many universities, a majority of classes are not captioned. But UW-Madison wants to make sure those that need captions aren’t dissuaded from asking for accommodation. They added a notice at the bottom of their webpage to inform students about this option. Furthermore, the University of Wisconsin is working towards accessibility proactively. Having vendors, contracts, and a reliable workflow in place is the necessary accessibility framework that facilitates an agile response to captioning needs.
