This guide will show you how to find films available from the Library that include closed-captioning.
Not many physical DVDs and videos in the Library include closed-captioning, but you can search the library catalog for those that do.
To view all the library databases that provide access to online films:
In Films on Demand, you can either search by title or browse by subject area.
If you use the Advanced Search function, the search criteria includes closed captioning.
The databases Academic Video Online and PBS Video Collection cannot be searched specifically for closed-captioning.
Search by title or subject. After you click on a film title, you will see a tab for the Transcript.
To copy a stable link to this film, click Embed/Link below the video player and then copy the hyperlink provided at the top of the popup box. Note: The "embed code" may work in SHSU Blackboard but will not work in any other website.
Other video databases will operate in essentially the same way. You’ll want to explore them, depending on what content you hope to find.
You can also look at the titles available through www.kanopystreaming.com. That site offers selected closed-captioning and transcripts.
If you find a film you want, give the information to the Librarian the academic department works with, and we’ll get it set up.
