Kaltura Reach Machine Captioning
Machine captioning is fast, simple, and decently accurate (~80%) but may struggle with acronyms and industry-specific words. However, video owners can easily correct machine transcripts. (These instructions require that a video be uploaded to the Kaltura Media Gallery within a course and is part of our series of Kaltura instructions.)
Kaltura Reach will create machine captions for a video in English, French, German, Russian, Spanish, and Vietnamese if that is the spoken language in the video. However, it does not translate the spoken language into another language.
As of 2023 Kaltura Reach machine captioning is enabled by default and captioning should only need to be requested on older videos within Kaltura or if the spoken language of your video was not English.
