Editing YouTube Captions

YouTube is the university’s preferred video hosting platform for videos that will appear on any digital product. The service creates captions and a transcript for each video automatically, but you will need to edit these for accuracy before sharing the video.

YouTube and Auto-Generated Captions

YouTube automatically uses speech recognition technology to try to generate captions, but they will not be entirely accurate and may not be ready when you upload the video. You will need to manually edit these captions and ensure their accuracy.

Instructions for Editing Captions

You can change autogenerated captions in just a few simple steps. See YouTube’s guide for editing or removing existing captions.


Challenge the conventional. Create the exceptional. No Limits.
