Captioning presentations will cover a variety of topics such as the Distance Education Captioning and Transcription (DECT) Grant, 3CMedia Solutions, and how different assistive technology products work with captions presented over mobile devices. In the afternoon, a college presentation will demonstrate setting up a PDF Form remediation project, and different assistive technologies interacting with PDF documents.
