VDEI Caption Centre

VDEI offers a free captioning service for educational audio-visual media being used by secondary students in Years 7-12 who are deaf or hard of hearing. This service is free to all government, Catholic and Independent secondary schools and includes captioning of MP4 files, YouTube clips and videos.

To register a request for captioning, please forward your project to the VDEI Caption Centre at caption.centre@deafeducation.vic.edu.au using Google Drive, Dropbox or OneDrive. The Caption Centre no longer accepts media on DVDs, but you can convert the media content to MP4 format using Handbrake, a free video transcoder. Your school technician should be able to help you do this if necessary or email the Caption Centre directly if you need further help.

The captioned material will be emailed back to you via a downloadable link.
