LIVE DEMO: How to Caption Online Videos

This demo was originally scheduled for September 1st and had to be rescheduled. You’ll need to register again even if you did for the original date so we know who will actually join this newly rescheduled date.

Online videos are the best way to provide full communication in ASL for many deaf organizations… BUT: are your videos clear and accessible? Roberto will explain why providing access information is important and Lizzie will do a live demo showing you how to add a closed caption file to your online videos! This webinar will leave you with tools, tips, and a better understanding of why your online videos should have captions. This free webinar is a joint collaboration with the Colorado Commission for the Deaf, Hard of Hearing, and DeafBlind

Note: this will not be streamed to Facebook, you will need to register for the webinar to receive the zoom link.

  • DATE: Tuesday, October 27, 2020, 5-6 PM ET
  • No CEUs will be offered 
  • Webinar will be done in American Sign Language (ASL), English Voice, and English captioning will be provided
