How can I caption a video that is intended for a Blackboard course?

You can add captions to a video in different ways. Some systems, like Panopto, and Echo360, provide ASR (automatic speech recognition).

You can find options for captioning videos for any use in the Digital Accessibility Committee website at Captioning at UIC.

You can learn how to use some of those technologies for captioning at the ACCC Academic Multimedia Lab.

*The Academic Multimedia Lab will be closed for the fall semester. Virtual consultations on multimedia needs are available by appointment only; 

requests can be made online using the Multimedia Booking Calendar.
