How do Viewers know if captions are auto-generated?

edited September 2023 in General Q&A

Hi There

We feel that it would be helpful if viewers know that the captions they are seeing have been auto-generated. Just in case there are any inaccuracies or confusion that they may wish to check out.

Is there any way for a user to currently see that the CC are auto-generated? We can see this as Creators/Admins, but how do students know? YouTube, for example, includes an auto-captions feature and displays "Auto-Generated" when they start, to let users know that the caption may not be exactly what was said.

If there isn't such a thing, I'll submit a feature request.
