Copyright FAQ

Can I Caption an Existing Video?

The University of Cincinnati is obligated to provide reasonable accommodations that offer persons with disabilities a substantially equivalent experience as individuals without disabilities. This comprises accessibility for electronic media including the addition of real-time synchronous captioning to instructional video.

The addition of synchronous captions to instructional video makes the content accessible, thereby creating a new meaning that substantially transforms the original work.

For more information about captioning instructional video, please contact the Communication Access Team in the Accessibility Resources Office at 513-556-6823,, or Interpreter/CART/Captioning Request Form.
