The Kaltura player have a feature that can show subtitles as a transcript, this can for many people be a great addition to subtitles as it makes it possible to search for words in the transcript and jump to that position.
How it looks
The transcript widget will (if configured correctly) appear right below the player.
The transcript widget can be shown or hidden by default (see configuration below), and will show up with the default subtitle pre-loaded, if multiple subtitles is available the transcript widget will follow the subtitle selected in the player.
The search field will highlight all occurrences in the transcript, and clicking any part of the transcript text will make the video jump to that position in the video.
To configure the transcript widget you will need to manually add the following UI Variables in Player Studio in the Kaltura Management Console.
|transcript.plugin||true||Load the plugin|
|transcript.transcriptTargetId||transcript-player-plugin||Page element to use|
|transcript.collapsed||true||Start with the transcript collapsed|
The only option that makes sense to change from the values above is "transcript.collapsed".
When entering the variables in the Player Studio it should look something like this:
