Adding Closed Captions to Flash Videos

Research output: Non-textual formWeb publication/site


Providing a textual representation of the audio content of a video program can be time consuming, but for some users it can prove to be invaluable. Not only does captioning help meet W3C requirement by facilitating access for people who have hearing impairments, it also helps: users who have no audio playback hardware; mobile users who are sited in a quiet area (such as a library) and those without proper audio codecs installed on their machines. This short paper takes a practical look at how to add subtitles to a Flash video file for online delivery. This is only one method of many but is perhaps the most straightforward and quickest for beginners.
