Closed Captioning Services

Creative Studios in Technology Support Services provides guidance and assistance for creating closed captions for videos created by faculty & staff at the University of Texas at El Paso. This service assists in the provision of required ADA-compliant captioning.

An initial consultation is required as it provides insight on how best to create closed captions for the video.

**Outside source and/or purchased/rented video is not eligible for this service as such video should already be available captioned, and as there are copyright issues and fines/criminal penalties involved in applying captioning to, or modifying in any way, such outside video. Those with uncaptioned outside source video should discuss their need for captioned video with the UTEP Library staff.


Getting Started

1. Submit a service request
2. Requesters will be contacted for consultation.
3. Depending on your needs, the best captioning method will be identified. In some cases where user accounts are required (for example: YouTube or Vimeo), step-by-step instructions will be provided to apply closed captioning to the video.



The length of time needed to caption video will vary with the length of the video and the on-going demand for the service. Our goal is to caption the video within seven working days of submission.
