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 firstname.lastname@example.org
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.
