Now that you have a captioned movie, open iBooks Author. Decide on which page you want to put the movie and just drag your captioned MP4 movie to that page. It will create a movie widget for you automatically.

Carmenne Kalyaniwala-Thapliyal's curator insight, May 25, 2013 5:08 AM

A great tutoriel on creating captions for movies with iBooks.

The software looked at work however only on a Mac that has the following tools:  MovieCaptioner, MPEG Streamclip, QuickTime Pro, ClosedCaptionImporter, plugin for QuickTime, iBooks Author. So, very limited in its scope!

Frank Lowney's comment, June 22, 2013 5:26 PM
Movie Captioner also supports SRT subtitles which, IMHO, are superior to SCC as used here. Now that iBooks Author no longer deletes extra tracks, you can use soft subtitles. In addition to a better appearance, you can have multiple soft subtitle tracks to support multiple languages. These can be coordinated with multiple alternate audio tracks to support multiple languages and the visually impaired as well.

Thanks Frank, I can always count on you to get "under the hood" for a more technical explanation

Teresa Deshon's insight:

iBooks Author is a simple to use program for macs that allows the creation of an interactive custom book for students.

 

Doesn't have to be a whole book, a topic, a unit, an activity. Build these up over time and edit as needed.
