Introduction to Caption.Ed
The University is committed to ensuring learning materials are as accessible as possible and because of this the University has a new piece of software called Caption.Ed.
It allows students and staff to generate automated captions on all media hosted platforms which are supported by eLearning Services (Panopto, Blackboard Collaborate, Moodle & ePortfolios). This includes both live streamed and pre-recorded media.
All staff are able to sign up for a free Caption.Ed account. By doing this, you can then add an extension onto either the Google Chrome or Microsoft Edge browser which will enable you to generate automated captions on all media played on the platforms listed above.
If you have any issues at any stage on this process, please contact the eLearning Services Team and we will assist you with this.
