The proposed AODA Accessible Information & Communication Standard indicates that instructional materials will need to be made available in accessible formats. One area that requires our attention is the provision of audio and video transcripts and captions. Alan Kirker from ITMS will give an overview of what is currently available in terms of transcribing and captioning technology, and review issues relating to cost, time and accuracy. We'll also speculate as to what is on the horizon in this important realm with the goal to enhance accessibility in teaching and learning environments.
