Captioning

Here are a few suggestions from the Faculty Resource Center in order to caption your videos.  Please note that all captioning must have a 99% accuracy rate. We suggest using YouTube as all SNU faculty/staff/students are given a YouTube account via their SNU email accounts.

  • YouTube - Upload or create your video from your SNU YouTube. Be sure to edit the automatic captioning.  Please visit the YouTube Help Center for directions on how to edit the automatic captions.   

  • Cielo24  -  For videos outside of YouTube (or videos you do not own), the FRC can submit your video to this online service that provides quality captions with 99% accuracy. There is usually a 48-hour turnaround time. They provide a transcript that you will need to upload to your video. For videos you do not own, they will provide an embed code for an interactive transcript to be placed in the LMS.  (Please note that if funding is not available, your dept. may need to pay for your videos. The price is usually around $2 a min.) 

  • Write a Script -  One of the cheapest solutions is to write a transcript beforehand.  Then, you can simply upload the transcript to your YouTube video. YouTube needs the file to be a .txt file (you can create in Word, then save as .txt).  YouTube will also sync it with the appropriate timing of your video, so you do not worry about that. Please visit the YouTube Help Center for directions on how to upload your transcript.

  • Workstudy - Full-time faculty may want to hire a workstudy to do all of their captioning via one of the above methods.

Please contact Disability Services if you currently have a student that needs immediate assistance. (405) 717-6272
