    CADET Software

    The Carl and Ruth Shapiro Family National Center for Accessible Media (NCAM) at WGBH has developed free downloadable captioning software, the Caption and Description Editing Tool (CADET V2.0), that allows users to easily and affordably produce high-quality caption files that are compatible with any media player and any web browser.  CADET can also be used to generate audio-description scripts.  CADET enables schools, government agencies, colleges and universities, and non-profits to affordably provide captions with their video content.  Captions benefit a broad audience, including people who are deaf or hard of hearing, those for whom English is not a native language, and those who rely on captions in situations where the volume cannot be turned on or up.

    Attend a free CADET training session at WGBH's studio in the Boston Public Library followed by Q&A with the experts who developed it.

    December 7, 2017 from 3:00 - 4:30pm
    WGBH Studio in the Boston Public Library and Newsfeed Cafe
    700 Boylston Street, Boston MA 02116

    For the most effective training experience, the following is recommended:

      -- Download CADET in advance of the training session.
      -- Download a brief media clip to your desktop for experimenting before, during, and after the training session.  NCAM often uses Sintel, an open-source movie, for demonstrations and training.

    This event is free and open to the public.  Please feel free to bring your colleagues, and/or to share this with those who might be interested.

    This event will be captioned using Communication Access Real-time Translation (CART) services.  For questions about accessibility, please contact Peter Villa at (617) 300-3626; or Peter_Villa@wgbh.org.

    Additional communications about this event will be shared on NCAM's Twitter and Facebook pages.
