How do I add captions to Bridge Studio media in a course?
As an author, you can generate or upload caption files to your video or audio files in Bridge Studio. The most common file type is an SRT file, though Studio also supports VTT files, which are more user-friendly for mobile devices.
If you need help creating a captioned file, you can use a captioning site such as Amara to easily create captions for your video or audio files.
- Some features may be restricted based on permissions for your user role.
- As an author, you need access to the Studio LTI tool to use the My Uploads page. Contact your organization admin for access.
