Request Automatic Captioning for a Video in TCDM

Updated

TC Digital Media can auto-caption videos that you upload to TC Digital Media. Automatic captioning in TCDM is free, but is not as accurate as captioning that is created by a human. Once automatic captions are created, you should edit the captions for accuracy.

1. After you have uploaded your video to TC Digital Media, hover your mouse over the video you want to auto-caption until a menu appears towards the right.
