Mediasite 6.0: Enable Automated Captioning for a Presentation

You can enable automated captioning for a presentation directly from that presentation's summary page. Once the presentation is recorded and published to the Mediasite server, Mediasite automatically uploads the media files to 3Play Media. Once the captioning is completed, 3Play Media uploads the closed caption file to the Mediasite server.

To enable closed captioning for a presentation:


Step 1- Select the presentation

Navigate to the presentation you want to caption.


Step 2- Enable captioning

On the presentation's Summary page, if automated captioning is disabled, click Disabled under Captioning.


Step 3- Select Automate Captioning

In Captioning Configuration, select the Presentation Captioning Enabled check box and then select Automate Captioning.
