Got the lowdown on how the Web Accessibility Center at OSU captions digital video at the Digital Media in a Social World conference, which I have been attending today. MP4Box, which is freely availalble, can be used to import a variety of video and caption formats, which results in a compliant stream.
As I’ve blogged before, this is exciting from an accessibilty perspective, a language learning perspective, and because digital video can become searchable using these transcripts.
From what I’ve heard, this process is a bit geeky. I’m planning to roll up my sleeves and give it a shot. I will, of course, report my results here. If you have experience with this, or similar software, leave a comment.
