Captioning Services

RIT has a long history and commitment to the deaf community. It is important that you caption your media.

RIT Production Services offers a full line of professional captioning services, which are available to our clients who produce videos and events using our services. Videos from other sources can be captioned as long as you have permission from the program producer or owner of the program.

Please Note: Media captioning for academic purposes (for credit bearing courses) is handled primarily by the Teaching and Learning Studios (TLS). The link to their request form is here:
