All videos uploaded into Kaltura (My Media/Media Gallery) after January 3, 2022 are automatically captioned with english auto-generated captions. If you have media content that was uploaded to Kaltura before this date, you can order auto-generated captions yourself using the instructions below. These instructions can also be used if captions for a source language other than english is needed.
Users can order automatic auto-generated captioning for a single video or for multiple videos in My Media. These captions are around 80-85% accurate and can be edited by the user after the caption process is complete. Once the request is completed (usually 1-24 hours), the captions will automatically be present on the requested media.
- Access My Media, click the checkboxes of the desired Media (A). More than one can be selected.
- Click Actions (B), then click + Caption & Enrich (C).
- Click the Source Language (D) dropdown menu and choose the language spoken in the media recording.
- Click Submit (E). The captions will be added to the video(s) automatically (1-24 hours).
Note: We highly advise these captions be edited for accuracy. See the Edit Captions guide to learn how to edit captions once they are completed.
