How do I caption a Panopto session?

Updated Jul 20, 2021

In Panopto you have the option to use automatically generated captions, or you can create a caption file and upload the file to your session. Captions make your content accessible to students who cannot hear or who are hard of hearing.

Import Automatic Captions

Panopto has the ability to automatically generate captions for sessions that are created in Panopto or uploaded to Panopto. Since these captions are machine generated, they are not 100% accurate, but the captions can be edited to improve accuracy.

Navigate to luc.hosted.panopto.com and log in using your Loyola user name and password. Open the folder that contains the session you would like to caption.

You can access a course folder in Panopto by logging in through Sakai and selecting the Panopto tool.
