How to Edit Your Captions

Beginning April 8th, 2020, fully automatic (machine) captions are created by default for any new media uploaded to your Kaltura My Media repository. Machine captions do not generally meet accessibility requirements, but Kaltura offers tools that let you review and edit/improve your transcript(s).  Note:  the captions are created after the video is uploaded and rendered; there is a short delay before they are available.

Kaltura calls the captioning service Reach.  Using the built-in tools, you can

  • Search and replace text
  • Add speaker IDs
  • Insert additional caption lines and more...
