From Transcript to Captions with YouTube Video

Dan Comins, Academic Technology Services instructional designer, created a screencast on creating captions for a YouTube video when you have the transcript in hand. It’s a simple, but easy and effective way to make videos ADA compliant.

You don’t even have to leave the video on YouTube if you’re using Limelight, Brightcove, or some other service. Once you have the SBV file and the transcript, you can remove the video from YouTube and upload the caption file and video to one of those services (sometimes you do have to convert to a different caption format, though).
