Accessibility at Stanford: Captioning and SCRIBE

Friday, August 16th, 2013

Did you know that Stanford now has multiple online systems for supporting document and video accessibility?

During this session, Sean Keegan from the Office of Accessible Education discussed how you can use the Stanford Captioning System to obtain a text transcript as well as time-stamped files to include into your videos as captioning.

The SCRIBE platform, and how it is available to assist you in transforming files into alternate (and accessible!) formats was also discussed. SCRIBE supports the conversion to popular mobile device formats, including ePub, Kindle (mobi), DAISY, and MP3 using high-quality voices.
