Creating Closed Captions

All video content should have closed captions when created.

Using Panopto: To create closed captions, either create a video in Panopto or upload to Panopto.  After several minutes, machine-generated captions are available. In edit mode, select “captions” from the menu on the left side and choose “Import Automatic Captions” from the dropdown menu.  The captions will need to be edited, just click on the text box for the caption and edit.

Using YouTube: Export the file as an .mp4, upload to YouTube, and in several minutes YouTube will have created closed captions.  Closed captions are 95% accurate, editable, and you are able to view a transcript.  Click on each link for the instructions for the task.
