Closed Captioning of Office Mix and Other Accessibility Tools

In this 3 hour, pre-conference session we learn to use the free software entitled Subtitle Edit and how it helps to add closed captions to Office Mix videos.  While we will briefly mention the 508 standard of the American’s with Disabilities Act, we will be concentrating on HOW to add closed captions.  We won’t discuss any legal issues.  During this same session we will review the accessibility options found in the Windows Ease of Access section of the control panel.  This includes the narrator, the magnifier and other tools.  Finally we will discuss adding images with “alt-text” to Microsoft Forms and Quizzes to aid students with screen readers.

URcast Network: A Hands on Training Session

In West Virginia, access to digital content for every student, both in the classroom, and in the home, can be a challenge. Causes may be a lack of connectivity, or an oversaturation of the available connectivity, making the use of Internet resources a nightmare for both teachers and students alike. With URcast Network Powered by WVNET, we aim to close this digital gap by giving all students the ability to access digital content and media from the Internet, without needing to be connected. Whether it be a smartphone, tablet, or computer, teachers have the ability to control digital content oriented messages to students using the existing LAN and WiFi infrastructure inside the school, essentially creating a flipped classroom inside of the school, or having the lessons taken home and reviewed without the need for Internet access. How does this work? We will have a hands on training session as to the power of this tool in this pre-conference session.


Attendees will need a laptop computer for URcast Software installation, as well as to be connected to the conference WiFi for this session.
