Closed Captioning

To meet accessibility requirements, videos need to be close captioned. There are several ways to accomplish this in Ensemble, including the Amara Caption Editor, or submitting a video or group of videos to our third party captioning service.


Once you have uploaded a video, please Open a Ticket at our Request Captioning (Ensemble Video) page.

Captioning may take several days once the request has been made to our third party captioning service.  Turnaround time may vary depending on the number length of the videos..
