Enabling Automatic Machine Caption imports on a Panopto Folder
You can add no-cost machine generated captions to a Panopto recording. Machine generated captions are generally 60% to 90% accurate. This type of captioning does not meet ADA compliance. If a student requires ADA standard captions you should contact the Disability Center at email@example.com for more information on the paid-for service.
Note: It may take over an hour after the recording is completed before the captions have been generated.
