Panopto - automatic captioning

Norsk versjon: Panopto - automatisk teksting

Generate automatic text in Panopto (ASR - Automatic Speech Recognition) #

You have the option of using automatic speech recognition to add captions (subtitles) to the video. Note that the machine-generated captions is not quite as good as manual transcription, and some time must be expected to correct the text. Automatic captioning works much better in English and larger languages such as Spanish and French than in Norwegian currently. The standard language setting in Panopto is Norwegian. Follow the instructions further down the page for how to change the captioning language.

When you upload an hour of video, it can take up to eight hours before the text is ready.

Automatic captioning will only work on new recordings you upload to the folder, either by uploading an existing file or by recording a new recording via Panopto Capture / Panopto Recorder. Moving existing recordings from other folders to this new folder does not work, but support for this will come eventually.
