Machine (auto-generated) captions have been enabled on any new videos uploaded to UP MediaSpace, according to Ben Kahn, academic technology services & innovation. Captions can be toggled on or off by viewers with the CC button on the video player. A video owner can edit or remove the auto-captions by navigating to Actions->Edit->Captions on their media page.
The accuracy of these auto-generated captions is fairly high and ATSI staff hope they will make videos usable for all, however, auto-captions are not at the accuracy level required for accessibility under the Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA). As a reminder, if you are using video in a course or publishing a public video that needs to be accessible please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to learn how to have a video asset captioned professionally.
