VoiceThread audio and video comments made by Metro State users will be captioned automatically shortly after creation, typically in about 3 minutes. To make sure the captions are accurate and accessible to everyone, users should manually edit the automatically generated captions.

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

  2. From the dropdown menu select “On”.

Captions should now display automatically whenever audio content is playing.
