The National Center for Accessible Media at WGBH (NCAM) announces the launch of CADET (Caption and Description Editing Tool).

CADET is free, downloadable caption-authoring software that enables anyone to produce high-quality caption files that are compatible with any media player that supports the display of captions. CADET can also be used to generate audio-description scripts. CADET does not require an internet connection in order to operate: it runs locally in any Web browser, so users do not need to upload private videos or proprietary content to servers or video-hosting sites in order to create captions.

NCAM is providing this tool to all users free of charge. Please follow the link below to download your copy of CADET now. And please join our online community forum to share your feedback.
