Captioning Services

Media Captioning is available to all ACC Faculty and Staff producers.  Media must be captioned if you have deaf or hard of hearing students in your section.   Closed captions are a visual representation of the audio in a video. They make video accessible to deaf and hard of hearing individuals by providing a text-based and time-synchronized alternative to the audio.

The FCC sets the captioning quality to requirements. As per 2014 FCC rules, captions are required to be:

  • Accurate: Captions must match the spoken words in the dialogue and convey background noises and other sounds to the fullest extent possible.
  • Synchronous: Captions must coincide with their corresponding spoken words and sounds to the greatest extent possible and must be displayed on the screen at a speed that can be read by viewers.
  • Complete: Captions must run from the beginning to the end of the program to the fullest extent possible.
  • Properly placed: Captions should not block other important visual content on the screen, overlap one another or run off the edge of the video screen.

Remember that quality is important when captioning your media for teaching and learning.    Please, contact Virginia (Ginger) Bennett, Director of Interpreter Services, if you have any questions.
