As part of UNC Pembroke’s commitment to provide reasonable accommodations to students with documented disabilities, the University has adopted a policy requiring “any and all audiovisual media used during, with, or in support of classes, including supplemental instruction” to be made accessible to every student in the course with a documented hearing disability through the use of closed captioning. This includes library course reserve materials.
“Closed captioning” is the display of visible text for spoken audio, most often seen on the bottom of the screen and sometimes used interchangeably with the term “subtitles.” The symbol indicates a program is closed captioned, as does the indication of subtitles in a DVD menu.
The following are some of current resources for closed captioned material:
Any questions regarding obtaining closed captioning resources can be obtained by contacting the Reference Desk at 910.521.6656 or email@example.com or the Library’s Disability Support Services Liaison, June Power – Access Services/Reference Librarian, at 910.521.6369 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Further information can be obtained from UNCP’s Disability Support Services at 910.521.6891 or email@example.com.
