Captioning complete for "Build Your First Drupal 7 Web Site"

Closed Captioning

Tired of watching videos and want to read them instead? Are you deaf or hard of hearing and need human-generated captions to enjoy training videos? Well, as of today the complete "Build Your First Drupal 7 Web Site" collections has been completely captioned and transcribed!

But what does this mean for you?

  • If you're deaf or hard of hearing, you can can now work through the complete collection without requiring a translator.
  • If you're coming to the table with some site building knowledge, you can quickly scan video text to see what you're getting into, and skip videos that duplicate what you already know.
  • When you need to zoom ahead, you can simply pause the video and read the transcription, clicking on text where you want to see a screenshot.
  • The entire collection is now completely searchable.

If you haven't experienced watching the videos alongside a transcription, I encourage you to give it a go. It will change the way you learn on Build a and will make you forever feel like other video learning experiences are incomplete in a critical way.

All this is awesome, but we still have some work to do. While bits and pieces of our other collections have been transcribed, we're working hard to complete a full transcription of all our videos in the next couple of weeks.

We hope you enjoy the new transcriptioned and captioned videos, and we look forward to announcing when we complete the entire library.



transcription process

Hi Chris,

Thsi is great. I have been viewing your Drupal videos for a few months now and find them very useful. One of the things i noticed is that you have synchronized transcription for your videos. Coul dyou share how you have implemented this - including how the text is synced with the video and what video player you are using?
