In late October, there was a thread about that on Kids-Lib (see bottom of this archive page<https://omls.oregon.gov/pipermail/kids-lib/2020-October/thread.html>) and Libs-Or (search for “caption” on this archive page<https://omls.oregon.gov/pipermail/libs-or/2020-October/thread.html>). Basically folks mentioned or recommended YouTube, Zubtitle, Camtasia, and 3Play Media.

I recommended 3Play Media<https://www.3playmedia.com/> based on the work we did with them to get closed captioning files and transcripts in English, and then have them translated into Spanish, for the Learn to Research video tutorials on OSLIS. Once we figured out their process, we thought they were easy to work with. You can’t get a price quote without first providing some contact info. After that, you get assigned an account rep to ask questions of. Once the work begins, files are added to your account as they are completed. Then you download the format for the files you need and upload them where needed. (Or, that’s how we did it, anyway.)

Hi Oregon library folk serving youth!

We've been doing closed captioning on our storytime and other library videos and keeping up as best as we can, but recent changes to YouTube's captioning process has made this considerably more challenging! We're trying to be more mindful and purposeful in making the videos accessible, so does anyone have recommendations and experience working with any captioning services we could contract with to make the process more seamless and take some of the work off our staff?

Thank you in advance!

Multnomah County Library - Hollywood location
My temporary schedule for the time being: Monday - Friday, 8:30am-5pm


Multnomah County is sited upon the ancestral homelands<https://native-land.ca/> of the Multnomah, Mollala, Kathlamet, Chinook, Clackamas, Tualatin Kalapuya and many other Indigenous Nations. These Nations have become the Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde<https://www.grandronde.org/>, the Confederated Tribes of Siletz Indians<http://ctsi.nsn.us/>, as well as the Chinook Nation<http://www.chinooknation.org/> and Cowlitz Nation<https://www.cowlitz.org/> in Washington State. Land acknowledgements recognize and respect the enduring relationship that Indigenous People have with their traditional homelands. The effects of colonization can still be felt today and land acknowledgements are a small step down the path of repair, reconciliation and cultural revitalization.
