Level of Expertise


This webinar will focus on three workflows for creating videos that are captioned for accessibility: editing the automatic YouTube captions, uploading a transcript and using YouTube to add the timing, or creating the captions using the free CADET tool from WGBH. The focus will be on the "how-to" of captioning. In preparation for this webinar, please review the Teaching with Accessible video section of the AEM Center website.
