Summer-Fall 2019 Update

Summer activities found a more solid environment for captioning in CapScribe 2.0. With the original CapScribe, video had to be local to the computer you were working on. This revision allows a variety of video formats to be leveraged off distant online locations! This partially comes about by integrating a project called Rosetta Stone we had long ago undertaken with Antonio (our Accessible Web Development and Media Specialist).

Other features we have incorporated include:

•Export for Able Player, the fully accessible cross-browser media player

•Font styles and location

•No discernable lag with very large video file sizes

With a foundation built – and a gauntlet of technical trials and tribulations to run through – phase 2 as the weather cooled down demonstrated the basic workings of a video description editor. One of our primary aims is to offer an intuitive and even enjoyable media editing environment for all.

As we look forward to phase 3’s curriculum preparation and rollout in 2020, we will continue to test and revise the graphic user interface, accessibility, workflow and interoperability aspects of CapScribe 2.0.
