2. If you don’t see “Import automatic captions” Option (Admin)

2.1.  The “Import automatic captions” option is available when a session has been processed for machine-generated captions. Sessions recorded after 12/17/2016 will be automatically processed for machine-generated captions.

2.2. If the session was recorded before that date, please contact support to have the ASR captions generated for the session.

3. Editing the Captions

3.1.  If your captions do exist and have been processed successfully, you will then be able to edit each individual caption by clicking the three dots next to the caption and choosing Edit (Fig. 4).

4.1.  Once you’ve imported/edited your captions, commit the changes by pressing the Apply button on the top right of the Editor (Fig. 5).
