I thought it would be helpful to share experiences regarding captioning in libraries. Have you had requests about captioning for videos or tutorials produced in the Library? Does your Library or University or institution have a policy about captioning?
Have you had requests for captioning DVDs, VHS or streaming video? I’m especially interested to hear how people’s libraries interpret copyright when it comes to captioning.
Does your library have policies as far as requiring either online or other videos to be captioned if you purchase them?
I’d be really interested to hear any advice about locating captioned versions of videos to buy or about communicating with the producer or vendor if they don’t have a captioned version available for sale yet.
