Captioning and Audio Search
The Caption Editor page allows presenters and global caption editors to review and edit captions that were created automatically by TechSmith Relay. When a presentation is held for caption editing, you will see a notification on your dashboard:
All processing and publishing is paused until the presenter or a global caption editor releases the presentation to complete processing and publishing. The editing of captions is done within the TechSmith Relay Caption Editor:
Once a presentation is open on the Caption Editor page, use the following process for editing captions and submitting the presentation for final processing and publishing.
In the Edit Captions view, use the video controls to review the automatic captions.
Edit existing captions by clicking inside a caption and editing the text.
Add , delete , and split captions as needed.
To save your work, click Save.
TechSmith Relay automatically saves changes to the presentation captions in one-minute intervals.
When the captions are complete, click the Preview and Submit tab.
Review the presentation and make any final adjustments to the text or timing of the captions.
When you are satisfied with the captions, click Publish.
The presentation continues processing and publishing. Depending on your profile settings, you may receive a notification when your presentation is ready to share.
Caption Editing Tips
Here are some tips to help you when editing captions.
To stop at the end of each caption, disable the Continuous Playback button .
While working in a caption, click Replay to repeat the text of the selected caption once. Repeatedly click the Replay button until you are able to transcribe the entire caption.
The number in the lower right of a caption shows the remaining characters available to keep the captions in compliance with guidelines. If a caption is too long, it turns yellow and shows a negative number of characters available.
Click Split to separate a caption into two smaller captions.
Use the standard keyboard shortcuts for Undo (<CTRL+Z>, Command-Z) and Redo (<CTRL+Y>, Command-Y) to undo or redo your actions in the caption editor.
It is possible for a profile to have audio search only applied to submitted presentations, with no closed captions.
This means that viewers will be able to search the video's auto-detected narration. Presentations with only audio search enabled are not held for approval.
