Edit or Delete Captions
All videos with audio (words spoken) should be captioned to be in compliance with ADA laws¹. Viewers who have auditory challenges rely on video captions.
Panopto allows you to import automatic captions, which means Panopto’s AI will translate your video’s audio into written words. Typically, a majority the captions are recorded accurately, but you will still need to review the captions and make edits as needed.
