Note: The average time for mechanical captioning for a 10 minute video is 1 hour.


6. The left pane shows the caption. Edit the caption in the center by changing punctuation or spelling in the yellow box in the middle of the screen. The video will automatically pause as you make the edit(s), and will resume after 2 seconds. Making a new sentence will produce a new segment, as each sentence will be its own box on the left.

The first image below is before editing, and the second is what it will look like when complete:

7. After editing the text, save your changes and wait a few minutes (4-5) for the system to recalibrate the timings. Be sure to SAVE your changes. Saving allows you to continue editing. If everything looks good, click on APPROVE to sync the updated captions with the video. The new captions will display on the video after processing, which should not take longer than a few minutes.
