Kaltura (Captioning) - Manually Requesting Machine Captions
The University of Wisconsin System (except for UW Madison) instance of Kaltura automatically provides machine generated captions at no charge for all videos added to Kaltura after December 1, 2021. For videos added to the UW System instance of Kaltura before this date or videos whose captions have been deleted, the video owner or co-editor can manually request that machine-generated captions be added.
Accuracy and Editing
Kaltura auto captions are meant for general use and are, on average, approximately 90 percent accurate. While video authors are encouraged to edit their video captions to correct errors for accuracy, there is no expectation that correcting auto captions for general use is required.
For more information on editing captions, see the Kaltura (Captioning) - Editing Captions guide.
If captions are needed to fulfill a reasonable accommodation for disability-related access, please follow the established process on your campus to ensure your video captions are accurate and meet Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA) requirements.
