The transition to distance learning will result in an overwhelming amount of videos faculty may use for their online lectures. Many professors have expressed concerns on how they would caption their videos for their deaf/hard-of-hearing students. Captioning can be a long process; for example, a 5 minute video can take up to 30 minutes to manually caption, making it difficult to caption/transcribe video content.
Starting March 17, 2020, CATS & MAP will be providing via email, phone and other online modalities.
If you have questions or need assistance, please call the office at (718) 281-5014, or email Shivan Mahabir firstname.lastname@example.org.
