How do I caption video or audio files?
Accessible and searchable media is important at the University of Illinois. We strive to make all media captioned to enable better searching and discovery and to ensure that accessibility needs are met. Captioned video is useful for those who are deaf or heard of hearing and for users with some learning disabilities. It can also be a useful tool to anyone who struggles to understand an accent, as reading text along with listening assists with comprehension.
The Division of Disability Resources and Educational Services (DRES) is the campus subject matter expert on captioning.

Once you have captions created, you can upload them to your Kaltura assets.
Automatic Speech Recognition (ASR) are automatically generated for all new entries in Kaltura. Media creators simply need to review them for errors and publish them to show in the player (Kaltura, Captioning Tools ).
