Joe Clark, accessibility guru and author of the excellent Building Accessible Websites, has pointed me to ‘Best practices in online captioning.’ It’s 21 chapters based on a government-funded university project, but don’t let that fool you ;-): it’s by far the most comprehensive work I’ve seen on online captioning.
I find myself doing more and more projects that call for advanced multimedia: audio, Flash, video and the like, as opposed to the more ordinary text + graphics. At the same time, many of my employer’s clients are either in the financial industry or serve various government institutions — the sorts of clients for whom meeting accessiblity guidelines are a matter of law. Joe’s work in this area will be a tremendous resource for me in the months to come.
Keep ‘em coming, Joe!
