Re: Providing captioning from a text file during a web cast?

Hello!

I just thought I'd offer my 2 cents. I'm not sure what Rob meant about
QuickTime being difficult to work with. I just finished up captioning three
videos (15 min, 22 min, and 25 min) in QuickTime from a text file with no
problems. I really liked it. However, if you are looking for something to
help with captioning, try MAGpie which is a freebie available from CPB/WGBH
National Center for Accessible Media (NCAM)
(http://ncam.wgbh.org/webaccess/magpie/). Version 1 is usable, but Version
2 hopefully will be out soon. I played with the beta version & it certainly
worked much better.

Best wishes!

Heidi Lefebure
