Captioning Videos in Panopto

Any video or audio files you upload to Panopto will have machine-generated captioning applied. This service is included with our Panopto contract at no additional charge.

  • To get started, setup an account in Panopto. The easiest way to do this is on Blackboard. Setting up the service will activate an account in Panopto, set up a folder for your videos, and also give permission to your students to be able to view your content.
  • Once you have an account setup, you can start uploading content. You can upload content one of two ways:
  • The content will be captioned shortly after they are uploaded. Timing will depend on server availability and length of video, but shouldn’t take more than an hour.
  • Open the video in the editor when you are done to make sure the captions are accurate and correct any mistakes.
