Flexible options for captioning videos.

Every organization has its own unique standards for video captioning when it comes to cost, turnaround time, completeness, and accuracy. Panopto gives you options for adding captions to your videos, whether they need to be 504 or 508-compliant to support differently abled students or you simply want to help improve comprehension and retention during employee onboarding.

Configurable video captions.

When a video has been captioned, Panopto’s interactive and embedded video players enable viewers to change the styling and placement of captioning to suit their individual needs. Viewers can set the position, colors, and size of the captions to ensure an optimal playback experience.
