We love member ideas to improve the site! What feature ideas do you have to improve the learning for everyone?
Hi, I am not native English speaker, and sometimes, I just can't understand some word. I think it would be perfect if you put English subtitles on your player. Today it is not so hard to implement this. Thanks
It is a bit harder than one might think. There is automated tools for it but because of technology teams every single one has to be reviewed by a person. We also have to write the automation for it and go back to 4000 videos and add it to each one. However, we do have this planned. It just takes a while.
This would be great for watching on 1.5 speed too!
Anthony, I highly suggest you pay a 3rd party crowd source to do that verification work for you. In house is going to be too expensive in man hours.
As someone with mild to moderate hearing loss, I often rely on Subtitles and lip reading to fill in the blanks of what I am hearing. Often on the videos, some of the more specific terms are challenging to understand since they don't tend to go in normal conversation in the first place. Having subtitles would greatly improve the understandability of the videos for those of us with hearing challenges.
I'll have to go along with Ken. I have service-related tinnitus and have a hard time hearing or understanding some of the words and have to rewind/replay a sections of a lesson over and over to understand what is being said. For example, sections that might take 7, 8 or 10 minutes can end up taking around a half an hour or more and entire courses can very easily stretch into weeks or longer. Even a downloadable PDF transcript would be handy if subtitles aren't practical and might be a more desirable solution.
We are actively looking at options to have transcripts for newer & most popular content. We definitely understand that this is important, and we'll keep you updated as we make progress! Thanks for the submission.
Hello everyone, I just wanted to get you an update. Development has started a new prototype video play for this feature!Best Regards,Richard LaytonVideo Services
Excellent, we are anxiously waiting for this to come soon.
Thank you very much for your efforts!!

Great, it would be nice that in the future students can add their subtitles (other language) and share with other students like Flash cards :)
Hello everyone, I just wanted to check in. Are there any last suggestions or comments that anyone would like to make? We are about to go into full swing for Transcripts.
It would be nice if the subtitles would be in every media including if I download a video from android app, also the subtitle was downloaded to watch offline.
How about allow students to help you in that task, so that we can add the subtitles, others can verify add different languages? You helps us learn, we can help you too. I would definitely work on that with you.
the course "coursera" created a community of translators. the students contributed to put subtitles in all the courses.
This is in phase 2 of 8 phases of development FYI. Managing subtitles at scale with over 3,000 videos is a touch challenge, not to mention how often we have to update videos due to content updates on things like AWS. However, we have a good way to handle it and are working on getting this out. Should be by the end of q1!
Purdue Global University IT uses Linux all the time. We desperately need written transcripts of videos to be ADA compliant!! We are currently using videos and wondered when these will be available?
This is not only "nice to have," but required for ADA/Section 508 compliance. Your government and education customers need this. We are using a ton of Linux videos in our courses and having to transcribe them manually. Glad to know it's in the works. Accessibility is much easier if you plan for it from the beginning.
Transcripts and closed captions are launching in April.
btw "Anthony, I highly suggest you pay a 3rd party crowd source to do that verification work for you. In house is going to be too expensive in man hours." comment is way out of wack . It would have cost us over 200,000/year to outsource it. It is $1/minute and we have over 5,000 videos and all the content launching.
The process would have been to long to outsource and way to expensive.
Is there any news about this?
You won't be notified about changes to this idea.
