I HEART Captions

Did you know that YouTube automatically captions all videos uploaded to it? And that it does it poorly? It does not recognize the name "INCOSE," and its guessing aren't consistent, either. 

Fortunately, YouTube (and Vimeo) makes it easy to edit the auto captions they propose. Users can do that within the website or they can download, fix, then upload corrected captions.

The Certification Program's current intern identified the need for INCOSE to fix its auto captions, and she has begun that work for the Certification Program. You can now find accurate, English captions for many of the videos on the Certification playlist of INCOSE's YouTube.

Are we considering captioning in other languages? Yes. We're starting with English, but we also plan to offer other language captions for our most popular videos. If you're interested in volunteering your services to write those captions, please email [email protected] and tell us what language you can work in. This is a great way to earn PDUs!
