Videos on Penn College Web Site Closed-Captioned

College-produced videos posted on Pennsylvania College of Technology’s Web site are now offered with closed captioning.

Closed captioning allows individuals who are deaf, or those with partial hearing loss, to see all significant audio content on their screens. The content may include spoken dialogue and related information describing the speakers and/or their manner of speaking.

Closed captions, so named because they typically are not visible unless needed by the viewer, may also assist those who are learning to read or speak a new language, and they may be used in settings in which the audio content is difficult to hear.

“The college is committed to providing equal access to the Web and other sources of information technology to students, faculty, staff, guests and visitors with disabilities,” said Kay Dunkleberger, coordinator of disability services at Penn College. “Producing videos that are closed captioned demonstrates our commitment to equal access.”

The college’s video production team has produced a library of videos supporting the “degrees that work” theme. In the videos, students are seen working on real-life, hands-on projects as they earn their degrees. These closed-captioned videos can be found throughout the college’s Web site. The transcriptioning and captioning was done by Automatic Sync Technologies. The video player provided on the Web site is a product of LongTail Video.
