This article is meant for students and instructors looking for more information on automatic captioning. Starting February 1, 2018, when videos are uploaded to Kaltura in Moodle and Canvas, they are automatically captioned by the Cielo24 service. This is done through the use of automatic speech recognition (ASR). Videos that have been captioned appear with the tag "asr_caption_complete".
ASR captions should be considered drafts as they are about 80% accurate and do not meet disability accommodation requirements. You are not required to ensure the accuracy of the ASR captions, but if you plan to reuse video content in the future it is a good idea.
Currently, there is no way to prevent automatic captions from occuring on a per course or per-video basis. If you wish to discuss this matter further with OIT Video & Conferencing staff, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
