Penn State now requires that videos that are available to the general public should be made accessible. You could pay $150 per hour of video to send it out to be captioned, or you can do it yourself for free using MovieCaptioner. MovieCaptioner is a cross-platform application that allows you to listen to the audio in short snippets and type what you hear. It will keep repeating the same snippet of the movie until you have what you hear typed. Then hitting the Return key will record the caption and the timecode associated with it and advance you to the next snippet of the movie. When you're all done typing in the captions, it's a simple matter of exporting to many different formats, including YouTube, JW Player, SCC (for iPods and broadcasting), Flash, STL and Adobe Encore for DVDs, and will export text transcripts as well. This session will be a demo of how to use the software and uploading captions to YouTube will be demonstrated as well. Each attendee can get a free copy of MovieCaptioner to use on their own computer. Experience Level: Beginner - Assumes no prior knowledge of topic. Prerequisite Knowledge:
