General Best Practices and Other Information


Microsoft Teams

Currently, it is not possible to integrate a third-party captioning vendor with Teams to provide live captions. MS Teams relies on Automatic Speech Recognition (ASR) for this service. More information on ASR and other methods for creating transcripts and captions can be found on the Accessible Video and Audio Materials site on the UVA Library site. ASR is not a recommended solution for accommodation purposes.
