About automatically generated captions

Udemy automatically captions courses in English to help make course content more accessible to students around the world. Captions can make courses easier to comprehend for non-native speakers. Plus, they offer more clarity, reinforce learning, and make courses accessible to hearing-impaired students.

Captions are automatically generated using speech recognition technology. They’re generally created within 48 hours of submitting your course for review. Be sure to review the automatically generated captions in your course videos. If your course includes technical terms, acronyms, or names of people and places, it’s especially important to review the captions to improve their quality.

Currently, the captioning program is limited to generating English captions for English content only. But if you wish, you can add auto-generated captions in other languages.
