Purpose

Faculty can order high-quality captions directly from a captioning vendor, rather than going through Accessibility staff, relying on auto-generated captions, or creating quality captions on their own.

Description

Verbit is a captioning service that Santa Rosa Junior College has subscribed to in order to assist faculty with obtaining quality captions for their course videos. 

How to Use

The process to obtain captions from Verbit includes the following. See the Verbit Captioning Service page for detailed steps.
