You have left! (?) (thinking…)

We are working on the very first version of the solution and close to push to customers:

We’ve updated the status on the above specific ask, and will update it when it rolls out to prod.

We don’t have a concrete plan on starting on the automatic caption from Azure Media Indexer. More details to come. Thanks for your patience.

    currently Office 365 Video only support WebVTT which is not supported across the various platforms. Captions will not appear on iOS devices. This means anything we upload to Office 365 Video and share with other would be in violation of the Americans with Disabilities Act. I agree with other posts here requesting automatic captioning like YouTube does.

    we still need automatic captioning like what YouTube does for us - letting us edit it after creation.

    As a school with hearing impaired student this is a make of break feature for us!

    Please also allow .srt upload as we have alot of these files already.

    It would be good to put translations into several languages ​​with subtitles and / or audio.

    sería bueno poder poner traducciones a varios idiomas con subtitulos y/o audio.

    I strongly support this but want to make sure it's not automated voice recognition -- too many errors! Automated text to speech isn't accurate enough for quality captions.

    Additional functionality would be to then allow for easy searching and indexing to that exact moment in time in the video.

    The ADA law is serious and non-compliance is costing customers, particularly Higher Ed customers dearly. Here’s a list of ADA educational lawsuits that have been in the news the past few years:

    Education/training video content is one of the largest markets for content in general and the demand for a compliant solution from hundreds (if not thousands) of institutions and organizations is sizable. The technology is there for Microsoft to own this market space, provide an extremely affordable solution, and still make a sizable profit (while doing a lot of corporate good). We just want to see faster progress for linking and enabling all the technologies in a complete and compliant solution.

    This has been necessary for some years. In order to meet the needs of our students and comply with the ADA it needs to be given the highest priority.

    It is essential that we are able to provide our students with closed captioning. If technology is available to help us do this more effectively, then we need it available. Please make this a priority to help us help ALL of our students.

    This is an important feature that should be higher up the to-do list. ADA Compliance should be given more priority.
