Disclaimer message for videos that use Automatic Machine Captioning Provider

Enabling ASR captions for all videos at the folder level is a great, new feature. My organization would love to use this, but after speaking with our accommodations office, we were told that these captions may be better delivered with a disclaimer informing viewers that the captions are not ADA compliant.

Of course, instructors could easily find a way to notify their students of this on their own. But, we think it would be beneficial if a system setting could be added to allow for a customizable disclaimer message. This message could allow for anything related to captions; though, we would use it to explain that the captions are machine generated and the accuracy is low.

  • Interesting idea. There is the copyright notice option but sounds like this would detect if there were captions to automatically add the message.

  • Also the copyright notice is kind of burdensome to have to wait for it to go away, when you could put a banner under the video only if captions are on and it's automatic.

  • I very much agree @Tom Lynch it would benefit the copyright notices as well to have a banner feature.
