Some institutions generate their own closed captioning files and Echo360 allows those institutions to upload those manually generated file to captures.
Instructors can upload these files to any video media that resides in their library (captures or videos they own). Instructors for a section can also add captions to captures/video media they do not own but which has been published to the section by selecting Details from the content menu in the class list.
Echo360 only supports the use of .VTT and .SRT files.
Both Administrators and Instructors can manually upload captioning files to captures/video media.
To add closed captioning files to a capture
Once the file is uploaded, it is applied to and synced with the capture video. This processing should take a very brief period of time.
NOTE that if a user edits the video, the captioning file may need to be re-done and re-uploaded for application to the edited video.
