We are delighted to announce that the videos in our Scientific Writing and Publishing course now have English language captions and transcripts. 

Here’s a quick guide on how to use them.

1. How to turn on captions

Click the [CC] icon near the bottom right of the video.

Then select ‘English’. 

To turn captions off, click [CC] and select ‘None’.

(CC stands for ‘closed captions’, simply meaning that the captions can be turned off or closed).

2.  How to view the transcripts

Scroll down under the video and click on the ‘Video transcript’ tab. 

Visit the Scientific Writing and Publishing course to start using the captions and transcripts!

Note: The Scientific Writing and Publishing course is accessible to subscribers only. Find out more about our subscriptions here.
