Important notes on the automated transcription service ASR.
- The University is subject to regulatory requirements to provide accessible video and audio content. For more information on these requirements, please visit the Creating accessible video and audio content guide.
- All new materials uploaded to Echo360 via Lecture Capture or Universal Capture will have a transcript generated automatically by the ASR system.
- The time it takes a transcript to generate will depend on the length of the video and current load on the ASR system. Minimum processing time 30 mins.
- Automatic transcripts are not 100% accurate especially when dealing with specialist topics.
- Transcripts are not captions. A transcript can be enabled as Closed Captions on your video content.
From 18th August 2020 all video and audio uploaded to the Echo360 system directly, via in classroom automated Lecture Capture or Universal Capture will automatically have a transcript generated.
Video and audio uploaded before 18th August 2020 will not have a transcript automatically generated. Only videos to be used with students in the 20/21 academic year can be transcribed. To generate a transcript:
- Navigate to the Moodle space where the recording is hosted.
- Click on the Lecture Capture (Echo 360) block on the right-hand side of the space.
- Click the green icon to the right of the video you wish to add to your current year and click Details.
- Scroll down to Classes and click Add To A Class
- In the new panel select from the drop downs:
- The Course you want to add the content to
- The Term (Academic year)
- Then the Section, which should have narrowed based on previous selections
- Select New Class.
- Give the Class a name.
- Optional: add a description, and limit availability.
- Click Share.
Where it has not been possible to review the accuracy of transcripts, ensure students know that transcripts have not been human-edited and clearly indicate who they should contact if they have any queries about transcript content.
Automatically generated transcripts are not 100% accurate. The accuracy of transcription will be impacted by several factors including, but not limited to, quality of audio, background noise, intonation, accent and use of technical or specialist language.
