Caption.Ed has completely changed the way I am able to learn. I use it to watch all my lectures now and there is no more confusion with what lecturers are actually saying.
I was amazed at how easy it was to transcribe and edit audio. Compared to software I’ve used previously, Caption.Ed cut down transcription time by a good three-quarters.

Caption.Ed immediately made a difference. It created much more liminality for me instead of making me have to try and speculate as to what missing words were.

I would 100% recommend Caption.Ed to another university. The accuracy, the fact its timely, configurable and all the great things we’ve spoken about today make it a vital part of our university
