Captioning Resources

Do you have a student who is deaf or hard of hearing in one of your courses? Please email the Office of Disability Resources if you plan to show a video as part of that course. The video will need to be closed captioned prior to being shown to the students. Our office can assist you in getting the video captioned and requests two weeks’ notice to allow sufficient time for the captioning to be completed.
