How to Add Captions
To produce captions, we recommend you order closed captions through our preferred vendor, Rev.com.
You may also use automatic captioning in YouTube; however, autocaptions are not always very accurate and must be thoroughly edited.
Ordering Closed CaptionsIf you choose to outsource your video captioning, we recommend using Rev.com. Rev captions must be reviewed for accuracy, but the editing required is minimal.
Fee: $1.25/minute paid by your department
Turnaround time: Varies by video length; typically within 24 hours
IntegrationsThe following video platforms integrate with Rev — meaning your finished captions can be added to your video automatically. (The standard university templates also support these video platforms.)
