This is way too exciting and way too cool and I wish I could take credit for figuring this out. Yesterday my colleague Kim Randall (DEN Account Manager, Western Region) sent me instructions that she received from Dennis Cowick a DEN Star Educator from San Diego Unified School District. CC Instructions for Macs
I have attached the Word Doc that he created along with screen shots. Now Mac users can download CC files and enhance/change the actual CC text too. Thank you Dennis!
In addition to the CC Word doc, I’ve also created a PowerPoint that walks you through the steps that both PC and Mac users should take when downloading videos and CC files. You’ll also find integration ideas and a neat CC trick that shows you how to change the CC font size, color and even the text itself! I hope that you can use this deck as a tool to show your peers the power of close captioning and media. Close Captioning For PCs and Macs
Finally, by way of Lori Miller a DEN Star from Montgomery County Public Schools, MD, I’ve attached a Word doc that outlines the steps that you’ll need to take to get CC files to play within a Promethean Flip Chart. Thank you Lori! Promethean and CC files
As always, a huge thank you to you – the DEN Stars. You are not only educating your students but we techies too – keep on sharing your fantastic creativity!
