You can request that captions be added to your Kaltura media. This process is handled by Automatic Speech Recognition (ASR) technology and is about 80% accurate.

Editing Captions:

The REACH caption editor can be found in your myMedia library by clicking the "Actions" tab under the video you wish to edit. Clicking through EDIT > Captions > Edit Captions will bring you to the editor.
