KnowledgeVision: Adding Transcripts to your KV Presentation

KVStudio includes a feature that allows you to import a 3Play Media transcript into your presentation template. For presentations where you want to have a transcript included, choose one of the KnowledgeVision standard templates that has an area for the transcript to be placed into. 

When the transcript is put into your presentation, viewers will be able to read along with the presentation. The template also provides a Transcript Search Bar allowing viewers to search for keywords in the transcript and navigate directly to the time in that presentation where that keyword appears.
