Calling Citizen Archivists to Crowdsource Video Captions!
One of the chief goals of the National Archives is making our records- regardless of format- more accessible. Sometimes this means digitizing records and adding them to our catalog, but it also means creating ways for all US citizens to experience our collections. Accessibility of videos for the hearing impaired is very important to us, which is why we are pleased to tell you that the National Archives can now be found on Amara!
Amara is an online resource that gives individuals, communities, and larger organizations the power to overcome accessibility and language barriers for online videos. This unique tool is simple to use, collaborative, and fun to use! Join the National Archives team on Amara and help us caption our videos. It’s easy to join; just find a video that interests you, and start captioning!
