Caption & Transcription Services for all Oregon Community Colleges

In spring of 2013, every community college in Oregon will have access to approx.. 29 hours of caption and transcription services funded through the State of Oregon Department of Community Colleges and Workforce Development (CCWD) in cooperation with the Oregon Community Colleges Distance Learning Association (OCCDLA). Each college will have up to five years to make use of these funded services.

Project Background

In 2011/2012 the OCCDLA Accessibility workgroup performed planning and research in offering funded resources for caption and transcription services to each of the 17 Oregon community colleges. These services will provide much needed resources for assisting with accessibility accommodation requests for delivering instructional media content within each college’s distance learning programs. The decision was made to write a grant proposal to CCWD to purchase bulk hours for caption and transcription services. The vendor selected to provide these services is Automatic Sync Technologies (AST).
