Kaltura MediaSpace is MSU's video hosting service, and is a available for all MSU faculty, staff, and students to upload and share videos. Similar to Youtube or Vimeo, users are able to store videos, embed them into websites, and importantly, add captions or transcripts to make them accessible. This page covers the two main methods for adding captions to your videos.
If you have created captions for your video using a program like Camtasia (covered in the Videos tab of this guide), you can attach them directly to your MediaSpace video.
If you prefer, you can order machine-generated captions using the Ceilo24 plugin. This service is free to all MediaSpace users. The captions do require some editing, since they are rarely 100% accurate. Record sound using a high-quality microphone to improve caption accuracy.
When you generate captions from within MediaSpace, you will also generate a transcript of the video, which will appear below your media.
This video is hosted in MediaSpace, and captioned and edited using machine generated captions.
The transcript is available if you view the video in MediaSpace
MediaSpace places captions automatically. For some videos, like the one below, this may obscure important or relevant information for the viewer:
