Note: VoiceThread audio and video comments made within D2L using our site license will be captioned automatically shortly after creation, typically in about 3 minutes. To ensure accessibility of their content, users should manually edit the automatically generated comments.

  1. In the upper-right corner of the VoiceThread window, click on the “CC” button.

  2. From the dropdown menu select “On”.

Captions should now display automatically whenever audio content is playing.
