For those of you who have dealt videos/DVDs that annoyingly did not come
with closed captioning...

=20

We have a growing population of hard-of-hearing students, and need to
find ways of accomodating their needs when videos don't have closed
captioning. The folks in the Disability Services office are exploring
options, but none of us really know anything about what all needs to be
done, so any insights would be helpful.

=20

We've discovered the Captioned Media Program. Are there any other
services like this that share videos that have had post-production
captioning added? (e.g. how to avoid having to duplicate work already
done by others).

=20

If you've done captioning in house, how? What worked well (or didn't
work)?

Thanks,

Barb

VIDEOLIB is intended to encourage the broad and lively discussion of issues relating to the selection, evaluation, acquisition,bibliographic control, preservation, and use of current and evolving video formats in libraries and related institutions. It is hoped that the list will serve as an effective working tool for video librarians, as well as a channel of communication between libraries,educational institutions, and video producers and distributors.
