Embedded Live Captioning

Enable Live Caption

Class is starting and you’ve just found the perfect video to kick off the lesson, or at least it would be if it were already accessible.  Let’s be honest, accessible content makes it better for all of us.  Bryan Carvalho states, “As learners, we all benefit when we can consume content more easily, in different ways, at different times.” (Carvalho, 2020)  This is why I was so excited to see that Live Caption is an accessibility feature now capable on Google Chrome. It enables captioning of all videos!  Simply toggling on this feature in your settings can enhance learning opportunities for your students.  If you need additional assistance try Google Chrome Help
