Media Captioning

Before you submit video captioning requests, please search to see if there is a captioned version available. If a student has made a request for captioned media, you will receive an email from ARConnect.

Resources

If you need your UWM media captioned and did not receive a request through ARConnect, please email caption@uwm.edu with the course name, number and student name.

We offer captioning for:

  • DVD/VHS
  • YouTube clips
  • Podcast Transcripts
  • Pre-recorded Lectures

The Accessibility Resource Center requires a minimum notice of 15 business days for submission of media.

Helpful Hints

  • Check ALL media to be shown for captions
  • Test your videos before class to make sure they’re captioned and that you know how to turn on the captions if necessary
  • Look for these symbols on media packaging:
