VoiceThread Feature Release: Automatic Closed Captions

VoiceThread

On March 26, 2019, automatic closed captioning was enabled for all VoiceThread content.  Captions are automatically generated when a user:

  • Adds Media as the central media to a VoiceThread – The central media (video or audio) may be uploaded from the user’s computer or created as a webcam video or audio recording.
  • Adds a Comment- The comment may be audio or video comment, or as an audio or video file upload as a comment.

Automatic captions are not completely accurate.  Users can edit their captions to increase accuracy by clicking “CC” on the central media or the comment to access the caption editor.
