Request captions suitable for the deaf or hard of hearing

On this page:


Overview

Indiana University is committed to maintaining an inclusive and accessible environment across all of its campuses and eliminating discrimination against people with disabilities. This includes providing captions and transcripts for the deaf and hard of hearing.

Note:
Automatically generated captions (as found in YouTube or Kaltura) are not of sufficient quality to be suitable for the deaf or hard of hearing and should not be used as such. They are intended to be a base for creating accurate captions via the captions editor and to facilitate search, interactive transcripts, and other features.

Student requesting captions as an accommodation for a hearing impairment

If you find audio or video content in an IU course or website with inaccurate or missing captions, contact the UITS Assistive Technology and Accessibility Centers (ATAC) at atac@iu.edu or 812-856-4112. The ATAC will facilitate the creation of captions or a transcript as appropriate.

Faculty requesting captioning to accommodate a student with a hearing impairment

If a student is requesting captioning for media used in a course, contact the UITS Assistive Technology and Accessibility Centers (ATAC) at atac@iu.edu or 812-856-4112. ATAC staff will help you understand how to make audiovisual content in your course accessible, and will facilitate the creation of captions or a transcript as appropriate.

Other captioning requests

Faculty, staff, departments, or the general public requesting captioning for audiovisual content on an IU website or other IU system should contact the User Experience Office (UXO) at https://uxo.iu.edu/about/feedback/. UXO staff will work to facilitate your request.
