Temple University is committed to providing captions for its official multimedia content and will provide alternate formats for other public multimedia within a reasonable amount of time following an accessibility request.
The following guidelines govern Temple's provision of captioned multimedia for non-public, course use:
This guide will assist faculty in finding already captioned media in Temple's collections, as well as obtaining captioning services for other multimedia materials needed for course use.
Before submitting a ticket to arrange for captioning of a given commercially produced multimedia item (e.g., a feature film or documentary) please consult with either of the two media services listed below as soon as possible, but at least 5 days before the intended screening, to determine if a captioned version of the multimedia, with appropriate licensing, is already available in tangible or streaming format.
If not, the University has contracts with three providers who caption pre-recorded content. Arrangements for captioning, along with pricing information, can be obtained by submitting a TUhelp ticket or emailing email@example.com.
