The Video Editor facilitates the process of editing the Platform’s Auto-captions; however, users may also choose to manually edit closed captions.
Editing Captions in the Video Editor
In most use-cases, the Video Editor provides the fastest and easiest way to edit Auto-captioning for accuracy.
- Navigate to the desired media in Manage Media.
- Mouse over the video thumbnail and select Edit. The Video Editor will open in a new browser tab.
- Choose the CC button to open captions for editing.
- Make any desired changes or corrections to the captions.
- Save your edited media; the Video Editor is fully non-destructive and your edited media will be saved under a new name, usually yourvideoname_edit.
Editing Line-by-Line in the Video Editor
In addition to editing Auto-captioning through the CC feature, you may also edit Auto-captioning line-by-line.
- Click directly on the Caption text in the black box below the media.
- Make any desired edits to the text. Your changes will save when you save your edited media.
Editing Captions Manually
If you prefer to manually edit the Auto-captions, you may download and upload captioning files.
- Navigate to the desired media in Manage Media. Select More… from the menu in the upper right of the thumbnail.
- Choose Accessibility.
- Click on the Download icon next to Captions. The file will download as a .SRT file.
- Open the .SRT file in a text editor, just like you would a .TXT. Make any desired edits, then save as a .SRT.
- Select Upload on the Accessibility page. Upload the new .SRT file. You will need to allow the file to overwrite existing captions.
