The CPB/WGBH National Center for Accessible Media (NCAM) has made great progress in the past year towards making different types of multimedia accessible to deaf and blind users. NCAM has developed techniques which apply broadcast-based accessibility technologies, including closed captions and audio descriptions, to the Web. This paper focuses on three of those methods, using Apple's QuickTime (TM) software, the World Wide Web Consortium's (W3C) Synchronized Multimedia Integration Language (SMIL), and WGBH's MAGpie caption-authoring software.
