How To


How can faculty order high-quality captions for a VoiceThread in D2L Brightspace?


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. However, faculty should order high-quality, human-created captions for their comments.

After creating your voice or video comment:

  1. Click on or hover over the comment.
  2. Click on the “CC” button on the comment.

  1. Click the “Order” button in the same line as the phrase “Automatic Sync via Metropolitan State University”. Then click "OK".

Note: If you are a faculty member and do not see the “Order” button, please email the Center for Online Learning or call 651-793-1650.

  1. The order button sometimes takes a long time to connect. When it has connected successfully, the order button will be replaced with a clock icon indicated that captions have been ordered.

  1. When ordered captions have been completed, they replace the automatically generated captions. The waiting icon will change to a check mark.

Human-generated captions from Metropolitan State’s vendor are usually available within a couple of days. If perfect captions are needed right away, VoiceThread’s automatically generated captions can be manually edited. After captions are available, be sure to turn them on for your VoiceThread.
