Adding Captions to Panopto Videos

UW-IT at the University of Washington (UW) offers lecture capture services through an external service called Panopto.

Faculty, staff, and students with disabilities can submit an accommodation request to caption Panopto videos by contacting the UW Disability Services Office or Disability Resources for Students. If the accommodation request is approved, all costs of captioning services are covered by the UW.

If there is no active accommodation request, video owners are nevertheless encouraged to caption their videos as captions are helpful for a wide variety of people and make video content fully searchable. For specific instructions, see the UW-IT help page Adding Captions to Panopto Recordings.
