Caption That!

Feb 11th, 2019 | By | Category: Campus News, Featured, Winter 2019

Why it is important to caption your videos? How might captioning add to your content, and why might you want to become a captioning advocate at public events? This spirited conversation between Bread Loaf Vermont faculty member, Dr. Brenda Brueggemann, Professor and Aetna Endowed Chair of Writing at the University of Connecticut, and Norma Miller, a professional captioner and captioning company owner, addresses these questions. This August 2018 conversation was captured (and collaboratively captioned!) by Tim O’Leary, Co-Director of What’s the Story? The Vermont Young People Social Action Team.

After viewing, “Caption That!”, Dewight Leupp, BLTN NextGen Intern and University of New Mexico student, wrote to us saying,  “I was so inspired by this that I am currently starting my own ‘Caption That’ project with my university’s multimedia club.”
