This document is intended to give readers a basic understanding of terminology and tools available to James Madison University faculty and staff to transcribe video and audio recordings, and create subtitle files for captioning video.
Faculty are required to create captions/transcripts for their video only if a student in their class has registered with JMU’s Office of Disability Services (ODS) and has a captioning accommodation. However, it is strongly recommended that all faculty create transcripts of their videos so that students with inadequate internet access, hearing impairments, or different learning styles can access the content. Visit the ODS website for additional resources for faculty.
