What if a video is not captioned?

If you want to use a video from a source that is not closed-captioned, and you do not have a legal copy of it yourself. There are several options:

  1. Search for other versions of the video. It is possible that it exists somewhere in a captioned form.
  2. Request that the video owner provide captions. Email or write the video owner to request that they provide captioning (on YouTube for example) and wait for them to do so.
  3. Use Amara to caption the video if it is currently online (works with YouTube, Vimeo, and other HTML5 players). You can then embed the non-captioned video in GeorgiaVIEW and provide a link to the captioned video (for instance, "Click here to view a closed caption version of this video").
  4. Although this is not the most appealing solution, search for a video that provides similar content but is captioned.

If none of these options work, you cannot use the video.
