ASP Captioning Dept.
Captioning allows the Deaf or hard of hearing student access to the spoken language and the sound effects of a film. Even though the Deaf or Hard of Hearing student may have an interpreter or transcriber in class, it is impossible to watch the interpreter/transcriber and the film at the same time.
Captions benefit many other students as well. Students for whom English is a second language often understand English better when they can hear and read it. For individuals with learning disabilities, being able to both hear and read at the same time can improve comprehension.
*Please be aware that we need, on average 2 weeks from when we receive the media to when we can have it completed.
ACCESS provides this captioning service free of charge to those who have been granted the corresponding Accommodation through their Specialist. For those outisde of ACCESS, who wish to take advantage of our services, please contact us at email@example.com to arrange for captioning services.
Is my film already captioned?
If your film has this icon on the package, it is closed captioned.
However, not all captioned films have this icon, so it is worth bringing the VHS/DVD to media resources before submitting your request.
What if my film claims it is captioned, but I can not see the captions on screen?
Check setting on the DVD player to ensure captions are enabled, if they are but you cant see them, contact media services for a Closed Caption Decoder.
Are subtitles and captions interchangable?
It depends on the film and student, please contact ACCESS.
What is the best software to play digital captioned files?
The easiest will be to use QuickTime
