Kaltura includes functionality to order machine-generated captions that can be edited online. When captions are ordered a transcript file that can be downloaded is also produced. 

Note: The captions/transcript are machine-generated and their accuracy varies with the audio quality of the recording and the level of technical language used. 

1. Add Captions

Kaltura Capture allows you to add machine-generated captions to recordings via My Media once the video has been uploaded.

Note: A transcript file will also be produced.

Note: It is also possible to upload a manually-created script to your recording.
