Kaltura (Captioning) - Editing caption label
In Kaltura, a caption label appears in the video player's closed captions (CC) menu to allow people watching the video to differentiate between multiple sets of captions. This label typically indicates what language the caption is in and whether the caption is machine-generated or not. Sometimes a video owner would like to change that caption label to make it more accurate or descriptive. This guide shows how video owners or co-editors on the University of Wisconsin System (except for UW Madison) instance of Kaltura can manually change the caption label for their videos.
Here is an example of the caption label for a machine-generated set of captions, in this case labeled "English (autocaption)."
- the video owner or co-editor may have edited machine-generated captions to improve their accuracy and would like to change the caption label from "English (autogenerated)" to "English (corrected)" or simply "English"
- for machine-generated captions created before 12/01/21 which are labeled "English," the video owner or co-editor may wish to manually change the label to "English (autocaption)"
