Accessibility is not just a requirement enforced by institutions and corporate clients, but a big advantage in a world were watching silent videos is the only option as it would be when we watch content on a mobile phone while surrounded by other people without wearing headphones.
The Accessibility tab allows the creation of Closed-Captions for the hearing impaired and Transcriptions for the visually impaired, by importing .SRT files, .TXT files or by directly copying and pasting texts from your script into the text boxes included. You can also replace portions of the script text with data points from your list in order to inject the right information shown on screen, but this feature is more useful for Transcriptions.
You can create an accessible transcript file easily by importing the content of your Closed Captions, simply click the “Create from closed captions” button after you have finish timing your CC’s.
This useful feature helps you saving time and making sure the content has the same base information, just don’t forget to adapt the transcript section by replacing some texts with the proper data points in order to inject personalized information readable by the user’s web reader.
Individeo combines both the CC and Transcript information under its proprietary .IVAF format file, but it also allows you to export .SRT files, a format widely used for closed captions on standard (non-personalized) videos on popular video sites like YouTube or Vimeo, so you can take advantage of the Individeo extension even on standard projects.
