Caption.Ed is very easy to use. Once you’ve installed the extension in Chrome, you can access it on the top through the small icons on the top of your browser:
To start captioning a video, open the video in your Chrome browser. This could be a video recording of a lecture through your universities website, or a video you want to watch in Youtube. Simply select “Start” in the Caption.Ed app and then press play on your video. You’ll see the captions appear on your screen shortly after you start the video playing.
You have the option to customise the look and feel of the captions, move the area in which they’re shown and scroll up and down through the captions.
Once you’ve completed watching the video with captions, you download the full transcription to be able to review later.
