Closed Captioning

There are many ways to integrate Universal Design and Accessibility into our teaching. This brief article focuses on Closed Captioning (CC) for teaching and outlines two areas where we may integrate CC into our classrooms—Real-time captioning and transcription on Zoom and Non-real-time captioning as part of videos placed on Panopto (video service on Canvas).

The CC process is visually outlined for Zoom on the Zoom website and for Panapto Recordings on the UO Canvas Panopto module. The AEC also describes the setup and outlines how to set up a professional transcriber on Zoom should you have one assigned to your class.
