Media Access Generator (MAGpie) <Adding captions to multimedia>

Developers of Web and CD-ROM-based multimedia need an authoring tool for making their materials accessible to persons with disabilities. The CPB/WGBH National Center for Accessible Media (NCAM) has developed such a tool, the Media Access Generator (MAGpie), for distribution in SDKs, on the Web, CD-ROM and other methods. Using MAGpie, authors can add captions to three multimedia formats: Apple's QuickTime, the World Wide Web Consortium's Synchronized Multimedia Integration Language (SMIL) and Microsoft's Synchronized Accessible Media Interchange (SAMI) format.
