The IOP aims to be more inclusive by subtitling its videos.
- Videos under 10 minutes in duration will usually be subtitled by the New Media Coordinator – subtitling takes a long time to do and longer videos (e.g. a full length lecture) may need to be outsourced to an external company, which the commissioning department should pay for
- It is at the discretion of the commissioning department on whether they want to pay for subtitling a video over 15 minutes in length
- If a film is being made by an external company then please remember to ask them to provide a subtitled version of the film (as well as a transcript and a non-subtitled copy)
- If you would like guidance on subcontracting a company for subtitling please contact the New Media Coordinator
- On YouTube, the subtitle features can be turned on and off - whereas for downloads and Blip.TV, the IOP will either have to provide a subtitled film or non-subtitled film
Closed captions: These are generally considered the better kind of caption and are subtitles you can switch on and off.
Open Captions: These are burned onto the video itself making it part of the video and impossible to remove.
