1. Full Text captions that aim to capture all the meaningful words that are spoken; and
2. Simple Text captions that deliver a single idea in a single sentence. To deliver these our captioners remove metaphor and figurative language, as well as breaking down complex instructions into a single instruction in a single sentence.
Simple Text is especially useful for students with autism (or ASD) who have audio processing issues. It can reduce the anxiety caused by trying to process too much information. Students for whom English is an additional language also benefit from simplified captions to support access to lesson content.
