Closed Captions in Panopto

Editing Automatic Captions

All recordings uploaded to Panopto will be automatically captioned using Panopto's Automatic Machine Captions.  The captions will usually be added a few hours after the recording has been uploaded.  The automatic captions do a fairly decent job, but can have trouble with proper names or faster speakers.  You can manually edit the automatic captions using the following steps:

  1. Find the session where you wish to manage the captions, hover over it and click Edit to open the Panopto Editor.
  2. Select Captions from the left side of the editor, you will see the current captions each with its timestamp.
  3. You can edit captions by clicking in any block of text, edit as needed, and click Enter on your keyboard. 
  4. If you need to edit the timestamp duration, hover over the block of text and click the three dots that appear, then select Edit.

  2. Once you've edited your captions, commit the changes by pressing the Apply button on the top right of the Editor.
