Title Audiovisual accessibility: Evaluating workflows for closed captioning and transcripts
Date 2018
Description The University of Utah's J. Willard Marriott Library is working on a grant funded project to explore methods for generating and displaying closed captions and transcripts for digital audiovisual resources. Without a text analog available for this type of content, users with a disability such as hearing impairment are not able to fully use the resources, and the potential for scholarly digital analysis of the materials is limited. By testing different tools and workflows for creating this data in-house and examining options for outsourcing some or all transcription of audiovisual items, this project will help to ensure that audiovisual content becomes more accessible to all users regardless of their needs. Building upon the work of other archivists determined to achieve full accessibility for their audiovisual collections, this poster outlines the parameters of the University of Utah's ongoing project.
