Closed Captioning & Interactive Transcripts
  • 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.

Tips On Using Interactive Transcripts

  • 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.

Please note: Films On Demand is continuing to add captioning and interactive transcripts to all new titles, but the videos may not be captioned when they are first added to the collection.

IMPORTANT

If you are showing a film from a link in your PowerPoint presentation in a videoconferencing classroom, there is one prior thing that needs to be done.

  • Before you start your .ppt, click on Option 1: Films on Demand link in column 1 of this page. This will take you to the main “dashboard” page of the Films on Demand website.
  • Now minimize that screen and proceed with your class.
  • Leave the minimized screen there until after you’ve finished your .ppt. This authenticates you at the site and gets around a techie glitch between Powerpoint and the Films on Demand software.
  • Please contact the Librarian if you are having problems accessing films
