The Learn@UW Madison team is currently testing the Kaltura REACH v2 machine captioning functionality for Kaltura MediaSpace through an approved closed Pilot approved by the Learn@UW-Madison Executive Committee.

This pilot is being conducted during the Fall semester of 2019. The goal is to evaluate Kaltura’s machine captioning and caption editor tools to determine whether machine captioning should be enabled. If it is determined that these tools meet UW-Madison’s needs, the project will determine a rollout strategy of these tools and  outline best practices for this centrally supported machine captioning solution. For the time being users need to utilize the two supported professional captioning services for captioning video: Media captioning, transcription, and audio description vendor rate comparison

Further information regarding machine captioning functionality can be requested from the Kaltura Administrator via emailing Learn@UW-Madison Support:
