Captioning Services

Captions Provide a Benefit for All Individuals

Stetson Law is committed to providing a more inclusive and accessible environment for our students, staff, faculty, and guests. 

In 2017, EDUCASE review published a study entitled, A Rising Tide: How Closed Captions Can Benefit All Students. This study demonstrated how individuals with and without disabilities, including those for who English is a second language, benefit from the accessibility of captions.

Two key findings from this study showed that especially with today’s mobile technology, a majority of students use closed captions at least some of the time and approximately 90% of all students who use closed captions find them at least moderately helpful for learning in the areas of comprehension, accuracy, engagement, and retention.

Disability laws require that all videos on a public website must be accessible to all individuals, with or without a disability. Captioning your audio/video media is one way to ensure that your content is accessible to all.

Different captioning services are available based upon your audio/visual captioning needs. You must be an owner of the video to use these services.

If you found audio/video media clips from an internet search, please select a file from the internet that has already been captioned. If one is not available, please email [email protected] to discuss your needs. 

If you are unsure what your captioning needs are or need assistance requesting captioning, please email [email protected].
