Contacts for captioning
Captioning makes videos accessible to the hard of hearing community; a community that make up over 5% of the population. Here, we list both professional service options and do-it-yourself options.
For videos that you plan to circulate internally or externally, captioning may be required at short notice. These are captioning tools which you can use yourself, on smartphones or computers.
