Im losing audio for Katya
katya pereyaslavska
23:52
Is it ok now?
Mish Boutet
24:00
In particular, online video.
Melissa Kenney
24:10
Online video for me as well
Aneta Kwak

Mark Weiler

Discsussion about copyright issues with audio/video description
Marinette Fargo
24:41
I am hoping to hear about centralized captioning strategies if anyone is doing this.
Mish Boutet
24:45
Games is also interesting, but secondary.
Marinette Fargo
24:51
Podcasts
Monica Fazekas
28:56
No
Charlotte Innerd
29:03
Similar challenges, I haven't been as proactive as you. I really push it in my conversations with vendors
Charlotte Innerd
29:25
Had more challenges this last year with descriptive video
Monica Fazekas
30:23
Exactly what Katya is saying.
Lisl Saunders
30:52
The Library does not proactively caption. Some of our professors use Google Hangouts and Podcasts and use in-built captioning
katya pereyaslavska
31:44
I am hearing t
katya pereyaslavska
32:36
Oops. Sorry. Looking at usage stats for video bookings from last year makes a lot of sense for developing a proactive captioning strategy.

Marinette Fargo

What was your costs for captioning all of this Nancy? Did student accessibility services contribute any funding for this initiave?
Marinette Fargo
36:05
3Play media claims they far exceed the accuracy rates of Rev. Has this been your experience? Is your streaming service accessible?
katya pereyaslavska
38:30
For folks who have joined us recently please use the chat box to introduce yourselves & your affiliation :)
Mike Chee

Hi everyone, I'm Mike, a co-op student at UWaterloo Libraries, taking on an AODA project. Just getting some tech issues sorted! :)
katya pereyaslavska
41:05
Welcome Mike! NP. Thanks!
Lisl Saunders
42:19
Is the hub a physical space or virtual?
Marinette Fargo
43:37
I think that the alternative can be a descriptive transcript
Marinette Fargo
43:56
So that it can be read with a screen reader.
Monica Fazekas
44:21
Is the hub external facing?
Charlotte Innerd
44:36
Yeah, $12/minute
Marinette Fargo
44:52
My understanding is that video must have synced closed captions and a descriptive transcript.
Charlotte Innerd
45:00
but it was required for class so we did it. Still having discussions over the cost
Monica Fazekas
45:03
No
Marinette Fargo
45:11
No described video requests
Charlotte Innerd
45:13
No, but just had some students start who need it
Brooke Hiemstra
45:20
No
Charlotte Innerd
46:36
Money is one thing, outreach is difficult - have enough lead time to get done. Getting permissions is another issue altogether.
Marinette Fargo
47:29
I find the American producers really try to push for us to contract described video production because they don't have the 1.2.5 exceptions that we have through the AODA.
Mark Weiler
47:32
Nancy, your audio is lower
Marinette Fargo
48:15
difficult to hear your audio.
Aneta Kwak
48:38
Can you repeat that?
Charlotte Innerd
48:40
With the descriptive video we were lucky, it was streamed and the vendor provided us with a file and permissions and I shared the file back with them
Aneta Kwak
48:55
I think so
Aneta Kwak
49:07
Something similar to ACE would be helpful. No need to repeat the work
Charlotte Innerd
49:13
I think we would want it with the CC repository, but it depends how it works
Dan Sich (UWO)
49:32
What sorts of videos would go into this repository? We add CCs to our videos on YouTube.
Mark Weiler
49:57
Could we foreground items in the collection that already have description. Waterloo Public LIbrary has 679 items with dvds with described video: https://encore.kpl.org/iii/encore_wpl/search/C__S%28described%20video%29__Orightresult__U?lang=eng&suite=wpl
Marinette Fargo
50:36
Are others using a seperate audio DV audio file or are you using synced audio that announces between pauses in the video.
Monica Fazekas
50:37
I like the idea of an OCUL accessibility hub.
Aneta Kwak
50:44
^same
Melissa Kenney
50:49
Agreed
Marinette Fargo
51:04
I like the idea of an A11Y hub too.
Sarah Murray
51:37
me too!
Monica Fazekas
52:03
Yes, Marinette
Mark Weiler
53:13
CELA?
Mark Weiler
53:27
Center for Equitable Library Access?
Charlotte Innerd
56:26
It's not part of the case?! Sigh, that project keeps getting bigger.
Charlotte Innerd
56:51
Good to know!
katya pereyaslavska
56:56
COU has this useful site: http://www.accessiblecampus.ca/
Mark Weiler
57:30
Stickers are great idea!
Charlotte Innerd
58:54
I pay to have the file synced - not doing that myself
Marinette Fargo

https://www.uoguelph.ca/accessibility/web/resources/social-media
Aneta Kwak
01:00:01
Yes!
Charlotte Innerd
01:00:03
yes
Mike Chee
01:00:05
yes please
Monica Fazekas
01:00:06
At Western and at Western Libraries - all of our social media is tagged, captioned etc.
Sarah Murray
01:01:38
Monica, did you have a specific document/best preactices you used to set that up?
Charlotte Innerd
01:02:13
We did get the accessible game controller as a start
Melissa Kenney
01:03:06
We don't, but I'd love to see it included.
Charlotte Innerd
01:03:09
Will definitely be thinking more about this
katya pereyaslavska
01:03:22
I would love for folks to share what they’ve got in this folder: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1xDIG49Wf2y093adOaBRKNf_OVlUWXJsf?usp=sharing
Monica Fazekas
01:03:40
We first worked it out (what you need open captions for etc.) A few months later Western's Central Communications also is requiring it. I haven't been as involved lately, but will see if there is an updated document I can share.
Charlotte Innerd
01:03:40
what is the link for that site? where they talk about accessibility
Sarah Murray
01:03:59
Thanks Monica

Gaming is a huge passion of mine, and part of my academic research. Would love to help with anything :)
Monica Fazekas
01:05:19
For my colleague Dan, is anyone hear working on interactive tutorials and accessibility in it?
Dan Sich (UWO)
01:05:54
Uhm… like Articulate Storylines?
Dan Sich (UWO)
01:06:11
I mean, there’s me…
Mark Weiler
01:06:38
Dan/Monica what's the nature of the tutorials?
Dan Sich (UWO)
01:06:38
Or you’re asking the group here today, not me?
Monica Fazekas
01:06:43
Yes Dan.
Dan Sich (UWO)
01:07:13
You can find them here: https://www.lib.uwo.ca/tutorials/index.html Look for the ones with the ‘interactive’ (finger) icon.
Dan Sich (UWO)
01:07:16
They are library instruction.

The Articulate Storylines are currently being updated for improved accessibility.
Aneta Kwak
01:09:25
I would like to learn more about accessible social media
Monica Fazekas
01:10:54
I just make myself really annoying to everyone here.
Lisl Saunders
01:12:27
I have to run to another meeting. Thanks so much Katya and Nancy :)
Mike Chee
01:12:40
Same. Thanks everyone!
Nancy Waite
01:14:02
Hi Dan, Is the issue with captions?
Nancy Waite
01:14:41
One option is to add open captions to the video first
Mark Weiler
01:15:22
Thankyou
Dan Sich (UWO)
