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.

A picture of a keyboard and mouse, curved monitor, speaker and lamp.
Creating videos and then loading up subtitles are two separate processes for me.

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 and we can discuss how the course can be improved for your needs.
