Back in 2020, King’s College London identified the need to improve their digital learning assets to enhance accessibility for staff and students. A university-wide Captioning and Transcription action group was convened with three aims:
1. Enable accurate and timely delivery of captions/transcripts for video content
2. Identify options to improve captioning quality by implementing easily accessible human captioning alternatives
3. Support engagement with the ‘time-based media’ requirements of the PSBAR accessibility regulations
With a focus on developing captioning and transcription options for all digital services across the university, King’s engaged with several accessibility tools and programs, including Kaltura’s Captions & Enrichment Services (REACH) and King’s is now among the leading universities offering such a wide range of accessibility options.
