Making online content accessible for all users has become an important mission for educators. Adding closed captions to video makes it easier for all learners, not only those with special needs, to find and comprehend the information they need. Join us for this introductory, hands-on session as we explore the tools that YouTube provides for creating, editing, and displaying closed captions for video that you create and can upload into YouTube. Make sure to have a Google or Gmail account that can access YouTube. We will look at uploading video, the importance of scripting spoken parts, and some of the captioning options that YouTube offers. We will have files for you to work with, but feel free to bring any video that you would like to try. You will need to have permission (ownership) of the video to upload into YouTube, and you will need the transcript (can be a Word doc) of the spoken text of the video. Choose a video that is not too long (less than 5 minutes) and has clear audio.
