Great resource from Brad Held about using youtube to caption videos: http://ncdae.org/resources/cheatsheets/youtube.phpat #766Kelly HoganParticipant

I would like to try generating automatic captions on YouTube (thanks for sharing it, Brad!), but how do I make my channel/videos private so that only my students can access them?at #829Paul WolffParticipant
@Kym Weed – when you create the video, you should see different options for how viewable your video is. The option you’re looking for is “Unlisted.”
This will make it so your video isn’t searchable and only those who you share the link with will be able to view.
Note that, while “Private” is an option, that would make it so only you could view the video, even if you shared the link.at #844Ivonne Chirino-KlevansParticipant
In zoom settings you can activate the “Accessibility” feature and include Closed Caption. You can choose also the size of the font. This feature may not address all accessibility issues but at least subtitles.at #960Simon BloorParticipant
Worth noting though that this does not automatically generate CC in realtime unless you have a “writer” submitting text … this can be done by a Zoom participant but the likelihood of their typing speed being sufficient to keep up is slim – a third party vendor who is skilled in this would be the only realistic way of using this option. If you have a deaf student who uses CART then you can contact DAO/ARS for help with this.
So to recap the options for captioning right now
In realtime/synchronous sessions –
1. in Zoom – CC with third party vendor – needed if you have a deaf student
2. could use Otter.ai – machine generated captions – link can be shared with participants
3. the DAO is working on a third option to provide machine generated CC’s in Zoom in realtime
In asynchronous sessions –
1. in Zoom – record session to the Cloud and a captioned video file will come back to you some time later – you can publish/upload this
2. in Sakai/WarpWire – request captions when you upload the file – this has a cost though and the DAO/ARS can only approve videos where there is a captioning need as a result of you having a deaf student in class
3. upload video into YouTube and have this platform automatically generate captions – you can download this file, edit it to improve accuracy and upload again – share the URL
4. upload video into MS Stream and have this platform automatically generate captions – you can download this file, edit it to improve accuracy and upload again – share the URL
5. Use Translator in PowerPoint when recording a presentation – use English —> English setting – upload/share the fileat #1270Simon BloorParticipantat #1273
