ALL of the videos in Access Video On Demand database   now have captioning and interactive transcripts available, making the thousands of titles in the collection accessible and useful to an even wider range of users.


To toggle captions on and off: Click the CC is on / CC is off button in the upper right corner of the video player.

To set captioning as the default view format: Once you’re signed in to your user account, click User Options at the top right of the screen and then click My User Preferences on the User Options pop-up menu. Select the Show by Default checkbox under Closed Captioning, and then click Save Changes.


To use interactive transcripts: Click on the Transcript tab to the right of the video player to view the interactive transcript. To jump to a different section of the video, simply click on a word within the transcript and the video will skip to that point. You can also jump back/ahead using the status bar on top of the transcript module, or within the player itself. Or, use the Search bar to locate a specific part.

To turn the Interactive Transcript feature on and off: Users can visit My User Preferences, or administrators can turn the Interactive Transcript feature on or off at the account level from within the Administrative Portal.

Note that videos may not be captioned when they are first added to the collection. If you have any questions about captioning or interactive transcripts, please visit the Access Video On Demand Help Center or don’t hesitate to contact
