Every audio or video recording you created in VoiceThread will be captioned automatically. You don't need to do anything at all to initiate the process. As soon as you save your recording, the captioning process will begin. Captions should appear in 5-10 minutes, depending on the length of your recording.

1. Locate your VoiceThread, and turn on closed captioning by clicking on the CC button in the top-right corner of the VoiceThread, and select On before recording a comment.

2. For audio or video that has been captioned will display those captions at the bottom of the screen. 

3. For comments, the captions will appear as yellow text while your comment is playing.
