Little Falls, MN–May 9, 2007–Atomic Learning is now offering closed captioning on tutorials viewed in Flash. Until recently, tutorials played in Apple?s QuickTime allowed for closed captioning, but now customers can use this feature regardless of their player preference.
Atomic Learning?s Web-based software training takes software applications and breaks them down into tasks explained through one- to three-minute tutorials. The tutorials use visual and auditory learning principles to demonstrate how to accomplish these tasks, and closed captioning allows the Deaf and hearing impaired to take advantage of software training without the need for the audio portion.
Not only do the Deaf and hearing impaired population benefit from closed-captioning. Many schools are using the closed captioning feature in computer labs, where numerous computers may be emitting sound simultaneously. Closed captioning allows students to read what the narrator is saying during the tutorials without adding to the noise level of the room, which makes it easier for learners to concentrate.
"We are always looking for ways to provide our customer with more options that meet their needs and learning styles," says Chuck Amos, Atomic Learning?s CEO. "From closed captioning to tutorials in Spanish to flexible and adaptable lesson plans, we want learners to find our training and resources easy to use and beneficial in building their technology literacy."
