Video and audio content counts as “time-based media” under the Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) Accessibility Regulations 2018 (PSBAR). City has a legal requirement and responsibility to do what we can to provide corrected captions for all such media.
Below is our approach for the academic year 2021/22:
If live time-based media content is stored for more than 14 days it becomes pre-recorded time based media. “Pre-recorded media published after 23rd September 2020 must be accessible so must have captions, audio-descriptions or transcripts (as applicable)” (Lexdis, n.d.)
Upload Zoom recordings to Kaltura Capture or integrate with Echo360 to make the recordings available via Moodle.
Automatic Speech Recognition was enabled on Lecture Capture recordings from Monday 1st November 2021. This produces an automatic interactive transcript feature
