Captioning is integrated and available as part of a variety of software applications at Pomona as well as across the consortium.
Some applications that include captioning functionality include Microsoft Stream (Part of Office 365), the Google Suite of Tools, Zoom, Microsoft PowerPoint and Otter.ai.
Captioning can take many forms. From live captions to those which are generated by automatic voice recognition (AVR) creating closed captions, to those which are taken from a commercial DVD in the form of subtitles.
Sometimes captioning is about creating a workflow between a few applications so that we may achieve maximum accessibility and technological harmony. For example, one needs to find the best process to transform audio in to timed text, then that timed text needs to be joined to the original video creating a single file where the captioning can be turned on and off by the user. We are hear to teach you that workflow when a single application might not meet your needs.
