Closed Captioning for the Video Editor
Monday, April 18
3:00 – 3:30 p.m.
For a variety of reasons, video editors need to deal with closed captions for more and more projects. Improved accessibility technology and increased regulation has resulted in many broadcasters to reexamine how they deal with closed captions in their workflows. For many editors, re-cutting a program that had been previously captioned has often meant that the entire program needed to be re-captioned, costing both time and money. This session will talk about what a video editor needs to know about closed captioning and will detail some of the closed captioning tools that are available to video editors using an NLE.
