Editing Panopto Recordings

The following videos will guide you through the basics of editing a Panopto recording:

Panopto carries out automatic speech recognition (ASR) on all recordings, to provide reference text for its enhanced search capabilities. For accessibility reasons, Sussex have enabled Panopto to create automatic captions that will be embedded directly onto your video recording. Viewers have the option to turn captions off and change their appearance. These machine-generated captions aren't as accurate as human transcription, but they can be revised and edited to improve their accuracy. Also please note that they will not be available to import immediately after a recording has uploaded. For recordings less than an hour long it may take 8 hours to process the automatic speech recognition; for longer recordings it may take up to 24 hours.

To edit or delete ASR captions, follow the instructions on Panopto's support page on adding ASR captions to a recordingPlease note that closed captioning is now a requirement as part of the Public Sector Bodies (Website and Mobile Applications) Accessibility Regulations. This came into force in September 2020. 

You can add extra content to a Panopto recording after it has uploaded. This is a great way to enhance a lecture capture, or to build a flipped learning resource. You can add YouTube links, quizzes, further contents, more slides or more video streams. Click the links below to find out more.
