Easy to Use Closed Captions in Your Captivate Projects
One of the most important things that must be considered in all eLearning is the adding of content that can be used by people with an impairment such as “hearing”. This makes learning accessible for all learners and takes in a wider audience.
Adobe Captivate has given us the ability to create “Closed Captions”, that can be used in any of your projects. Closed captioning is the process of adding text to the screen to help support learners with a hearing impairment. This allows the hearing challenged learner to see and read what the narrator is saying as the narration is playing, the two sync up nicely.
And the good news is that it is a very fast process to complete and you can easily amend the Closed Caption text at any time later without having to retype every line of text, simply replace the text that needs to be updated. This means that you can now include more learners in your projects, get more work as more and more companies need to incorporate these new features into their work. For many companies, such as government bodies and non-profit organisations, these type of features are legally required to ensure compliance with the law and to ensure all learners have equality in the workplace.
