Kaltura captions are automatically created and have about an 80% accuracy rate. After reviewing your captions, you may have the need to edit your captions.

  1. From your Blackboard Home page, click on the My Media link.

  2. Locate the desired video and click on it.

  3. From the Actions menu, select “Caption Requests”. 


  4. Click the Edit button next to the caption request. 


  5. Each sentence will be broken out on the left side of the screen. Select a sentence to view the editable version of the text. You can click the Play button on the player to listen to the audio so that you can apply the appropriate edits. 


  6. When all changes have been applied, click the Save button and then the Approve button. An approval confirmation screen will appear. Click Approve once again. 


  7. You will receive one final confirmation. You can then close your browser window. Your edits will be available immediately.
