The Improvement of Accessibility for A/V Content at The University of Texas Libraries
MetadataShow full item record
Through their online repository, Texas ScholarWorks, the Perry-Castañeda Library at the University of Texas at Austin is able to provide users around the world with access to thousands of videos, documents, and data originally limited to the university. However, not all of the items available to the public on Texas ScholarWorks are accessible to everyone, as there are over 2,000 audio and video items that have yet to be transcribed or captioned. This capstone project addresses the issue the library faces in trying to caption and transcribe these items, as well as items to be added to the repository in the future, by researching how to best process the backlog of items to be captioned and transcribed, acquiring the appropriate software needed for the library to efficiently and accurately process these items, and developing a workflow plan for the library to follow when processing future items.
