On Thursday 6/25 Learn@UW-Madison released the Kaltura MediaSpace transcript video player which displays a transcript below your video.

The transcript is searchable, downloadable, and text will highlight as the video is played back. Users can also choose to embed a video with the transcript player using embed code in the Kaltura MediaSpace portal or in Canvas. You will see the transcript widget below a video played back in Kaltura MediaSpace if the video has captions:

A few players were removed as options due to not receiving much use. This helps keep the number of players to a more usable number. Media previously embedded with those players will continue to function. The current options for user-selectable embeddable players in Kaltura MediaSpace:
