Media Access Generator (MAGpie)

Version 2.5.1 (Windows)

MAGpie (Media Access Generator) is the original free caption- and audio-description authoring tool for making multimedia accessible to persons with sensory disabilities.

NEWS UPDATE: MAGpie 2.5.1 (Windows) is now available.

MAGpie 2.5.1 contains the following updates:

  • An export selection for the TTXT format, which can be used to add closed captions to movies playable on BlackBerry® smartphones.
  • An export selection to automatically combine (or mux) TTXT caption files with MP4 or 3GP source files. These closed-captioned videos can be played, and the captions decoded, on BlackBerry smartphones.

As before, you can use MAGpie to create caption files for YouTube videos.
MAGpie is a Java2 application which runs on Windows 9x/NT/2000/XP/Vista/Windows 7. Please note that MAGpie 2.5.1 removes support for the GRiNS player. If you are currently using GRiNS to caption RealMedia source files, do not replace your current version of MAGpie with version 2.5.1. (MAGpie 2.5.1 will still export SMIL files for the RealPlayer, however.) Windows Media clips cannot be used as source files except with

 MAGpie 1.0.
