The University is providing access to an automatic captioning tool to help with accessing video and audio content on systems used by the University, such as Zoom.
Caption.Ed can be installed as a Google Chrome web browser extension and when activated, it will caption any audio played through the web browser, including live Zoom meetings.
The software allows users to select specific dictionaries such as Social Sciences and Law, Health and Life Sciences etc. which improves captioning accuracy.
Users can adjust the style and size of the captions and the scroll function allows users to navigate through the captions and look back, even whilst Caption.Ed is still live captioning. It is possible to download a text file with produced captions.
