Kaltura – How to Request and Edit Your Captions

About Captions & Videos used in your Course

If you are an instructor in a course that uses Canvas or if you share videos from Rutgers MediaSpace, you may wish to notify your students to report any errors to you. Include a note in your syllabus that all captions are machine-generated and to contact the instructor regarding inaccuracies.


Automated captions, powered by Verbit, are enabled in Rutgers MediaSpace, powered by Kaltura. When a video is uploaded to MediaSpace via the standalone website or through Rutgers Canvas, captions are generated using automatic speech recognition.  This service provides 70-95% accuracy.  Video owners will need to review and edit their captions to increase accuracy.
