Streaming Videos and Media: Closed Captioning

Search for Media Resources

Finding Closed Captioned Videos

Find closed captioned videos by using the Library's catalogue or searching individual collections.

Using the Advanced Catalogue Search, type in "closed caption$" along with your topic (the $ retrieves all possible endings of the word 'caption').

e.g. closed caption$ AND nutrition

For more assistance with searching, please contact your subject specialist librarian - see the Contact page or reference@dc-uoit.ca.

Using existing closed captioned media is encouraged. The cost of making a request to a vendor to close caption, or to modify a non-closed captioned DVD from a television series (e.g. CBC) can be very costly (often over $500) and time consuming (8-12 weeks). For more information, please contact Catherine Davidson, University Librarian, via email or 905-721-8668 x2348.
