Why CaptionConnect

Section author

Active participation for all

CaptionConnect helps to reduce learning barriers and increase the number of students and employees actively participating in education and in the workforce by making spoken language more accessible for all.

CaptionConnect helps improve outcomes for all students including students with additional learning needs and/or students who are Deaf of hard of hearing. With CaptionConnect, students can:

  • View the automatic captioning in real-time to follow along with the lesson.
  • View the transcript post session to help revise any information that was spoken during the live session

Foreign and international students who prefer English in a written format will also gain value from this teaching platform which supports multilingual translations allowing international students to translate the content into their native language.

With CaptionConnect, international students can:

  • Replay the audio to support understanding and information retention.
  • Translate the audio or transcript to their native language to enhance understanding and comprehension.
  • Read the transcripts, which may be easier for them to understand.
