Make Videos Accessible with Captioning from Video on Demand

Related services: Video on Demand


Video on Demand (VOD) lets users add captions using Automatic Speech Recognition (ASR). This is available to any user of the Video on Demand service. The ASR typically has a 70-80% accuracy. This method can generate captions in 10-20 minutes, but may require an hour or longer depending on service load. Captioning videos helps to meet accessibility standards that are an objective of Cornell's strategic plan.
