Making GDEP training content more accessible
As Gentle Readers may be aware, there is a comprehensive and inclusive end of life training course offered online by GDEP.
What some of you may not know is that I am working to create subtitled versions of all the recorded content in an effort to better support vision-impaired students, and those who prefer to study with subtitles on and sound down.
The process of creating subtitles is quite time-consuming, because I don't have a north American accent (which AI software tends to favour), and as I speak slowly for the recordings there are many adjustments to the subtitle content that I need to make for each individual recording in every module. So, the subtitle content is a slow-burn priority that I am working on in the background, uploading one video at a time.
My goal is to have all the published content for GDEP courses to be up to date by the end of the calendar year - and I will keep you updated.
In the meantime, if you are a student, or prospective student, and there is an accessibility need that my course is not currently offering, please get in touch and let me know. Email firstname.lastname@example.org and we can discuss how the course can be improved for your needs.
