Kaltura – Add or Edit Captions on your Videos

Fully automatic (machine) captions are created by default for any new media uploaded to your Kaltura My Media repository. Machine captions do not generally meet accessibility requirements, but Kaltura offers tools that let you review and edit/improve your transcript(s).  Note:  the captions are created after the video is uploaded and rendered; there is a short delay before they are available.

Add Captions to Your Video

To request machine captions for older media or request media be captioned in a different language:

  1. Log in to canvas.unm.edu.
  2. In the Global Navigation, Click Account > My Media.

Note: If you are accessing Kaltura for the first time inside of Canvas, you may be asked to Authorize the Kaltura Tools in your account.

  1. Your My Media repository will load.
  2. Click the checkbox to the left of the video you wish to add captions to.
  3. Click Actions > Caption & Enrich.

The Order Captions & Enrichment Services will load. Here you can order machine captions by selecting a language (English, Spanish) from the dropdown, and the feature you are requesting.
