Free online captioning software Overstream is currently experiencing problems with its video streaming functions. Videos can be searched for but not played online or uploaded so that captions can be created for them.

This is affecting the accessibility of some lesson plans on the educational CAP THAT! website, as it often utilises the Overstream software to post captioned videos to be used in classrooms for the literacy benefit for all students. This problem has been noticed over a span of a week with no changes and CAP THAT! has notified Overstream of the issues.

This technical problem has come at an inconvenient time due to the recent launch of the 2012 CAP THAT!campaign, however the website also has a range of lesson plans that use other captioned video websites.

Once Overstream is up and running again Media Access Australia will make another announcement. Alternatively you can sign up to the CAP THAT! newsletter to be kept up to date.
