Improve player UX on CC with multiple languages


If a Panopto video have more than one CC language attached, it is too hidden for people to find or even know about.

The CC button only toggles captions on/off. But 99% of the viewers will expect to find any additional languages under the same button. Now a user has to know about the option (if the correct attribute in the embed is activated). It is hidden behind four clicks under the interactive push up menu. And only if the menu is activated in the embed.

A simple hover over CC in the player should reveal any extra language options. This is so much smoother, accessible and intuitive. Vimeo, YouTube and most other video services have done that.
