In Spring of 2013 the OCCDLA secured funding for all 17 Oregon Community Colleges to receive access to closed captioning and transcriptions services for up to five years.

Project Goals

The primary goals and objectives for the project are to provide access to captioning and transcription resources for all Oregon community colleges, facilitate the use of these resources state-wide, maintain accurate and transparent reporting of the usage of resources and to help individual colleges become more familiar and better prepared to meet media accessibility needs.

Project History

In Spring of 2013 all 17 Oregon Community Colleges received access to a shared pool of 500 hours of Closed Captioning and Transcription services provided by Automatic Sync Technologies via their CaptionSync website. These services are available to each college for up to five years or until used.

Project Funding

This project has been funded by the state office of Oregon Department of Community Colleges and Workforce Development (CCWD) in cooperation with the Oregon Community Colleges Distance Learning Association (OCCDLA).

Support Resources

Chemeketa Community College manages the IGRA for this project, coordinates the services provided by AST for all Oregon community colleges and reports to the OCCDLA quarterly on the usage and redistribution of these services.

Each college has been assigned a technical site administrator for coordinating the use of these services on each of their campuses. View an updated list of College Site Administrators here.
