Today, education includes traditional in-class environments as well as classes streamed online. Students with disability, international students and even teachers themselves all benefit from an accessible learning environment. Captions, subtitles, audio description, note taking and transcripts level the playing field for all students, making sure no one is left behind.
On the accessibility and engagement front, we have pioneered remote live captioning for students with our revolutionary Ai-Live platform.
We have worked hand-in-hand with universities and colleges in the USA, Canada, Australia, the UK, and Europe to make sure education institutions are meeting their regulatory requirements to provide accessibility to students with disability.
Our products support students with deafness, vision loss, autism, auditory processing disorders and learning difficulties.
Captioning in the classroom unlocks content of all kinds, from live lectures and tutorials to pre-recorded videos. If your students need real-time access to classroom content, live captioning (also known as CART) is the answer. Students can read what their teachers are saying in real time on their own devices, or displayed on a screen for the whole class to enjoy.
Almost every college and university course includes video material for students to watch at home or played in class. Adding captioning in advance ensures your courses are always accessible.
When holding large events, such as convocations, guest speaker events and graduations ceremonies, the hope is that every student and their family can enjoy the occasion in person – but this is not always possible. Therefore, many institutions are now livestream these events, and adding live captioning ensures these events are accessible to everyone.
Ai-Media met with the University of California, Davis at NAACO 2018 to discuss their focus on diversity within the campus. The result of this meeting was the need for a ‘text to personal device’ option for students that wished to tune into the updates of an upcoming ceremony.
Ai-Media partnered with UC Davis to provide CART captioning for the campus-wide ceremony later that year. The live-captioned event was shown in multiple languages across four different streams across the university.
