As part of our commitment to sustaining an accessible environment on VSU’s campus, the Access Office will assist in transcribing and captioning materials, or obtaining captioned materials that may be used during a VSU-related activity.
A transcript is simply a written version of whatever is spoken or heard in an audio or video track. Depending on the nature of the material, a transcript may be sufficient and equitable -- for example, an audio track or a “talking head” video with little or no visual referencing.
Captions are the text that display on the screen during a video. Captions provide real-time, visual access to the auditory and visual information of the video, including information about the speaker(s), environmental sounds, and music. Some videos, due to the highly visual nature of their content, may require captions in order to be accessible and equitable.
Students who require captioned materials in their classroom setting should include this as part of their (link)Request for Faculty Letters(link).
Faculty can receive transcription and captioning assistance from the Access Office in a variety of ways. To request captioning or transcription, please fill out the Captioning & Transcription Request form below.
Transcribing and captioning are time-consuming tasks.
