The Accessible Technology Initiative (ATI) is a critically important initiative designed to eliminate accessibility barriers across the university system. The California State University Chancellor’s office has a captioning contract in place with Automatic Sync Technologies (AST) to facilitate accessibility compliance and greater use of Universal Design for Learning techniques. This contract provides special CaptionSync pricing for all CSU campuses. This case study showcases how the CSU system partners with AST.
When using CaptionSync, users can easily submit their media for transcription and captioning with just a few clicks. CaptionSync integrates into nearly all video platforms, including those used widely on CSU campuses, such as Mediasite, VoiceThread and ShareStream.
A full suite of video accessibility services are available for purchase under the contract with the CSU chancellor’s office. Main offerings include, but are not limited to:
- Post-Production Captioning and Transcription
- Audio Description
- Live Captioning (CART) Services
- Production Transcripts
