Panopto offers accessibility features that allows users to easily navigate and read the Panopto web interface. The web interface supports screen readers for all available creator and viewer interfaces. The web interface also supports keyboard access, allowing you to use the tab key to access all available functions. All sessions fully support adding and displaying captions.
Captioning is a process that makes video content accessible to all people whether they are deaf, hard of hearing, English language learners, or otherwise. When you consider that these groups represent a large proportion of the global population, disregarding captions in your video content is simply not a reasonable option.
Panopto supports ingestion of *.srt, *.ashx, and *.dxfp files as captions for a video. These files can be formatted in the following manner:
1 00:00:00,500 --> 00:00:07,040 [ Music ] 2 00:00:07,040 --> 00:00:08,300 >> In order to palpate the medial epicondyle 3 00:00:08,300 --> 00:00:12,320 of the femur start with your hand on the medial aspect 4 00:00:12,320 --> 00:00:15,870 of the thigh and move in a distal direction or you can save a block of text as a supported file type.
Captions can be written in a regular text editor such as TextEdit, or NotePad.
