Starting on December 1, 2021, machine-generated captions added to videos on the University of Wisconsin System (except for UW Madison) instance of Kaltura will be identified in the Kaltura video player with a "English (autocaption)" label.

This label will help users know that the video captions were machine-generated, and may not be entirely accurate unless the video owner has manually edited them.

The "English (autocaption)" label appears in the video player, in the "CC" menu that a viewer uses to turn captions on:

Bottom portion of a Kaltura video player screen with the "CC" closed captions button highlighted and the menu option for "English (autocaption)" displayed.

Video owners or co-editors can edit the captions label if they wish. See: Kaltura (Captioning) - Editing caption label.
