Interactive Transcript

Follow

Starting in Ensemble Video version 4.8, a new player interface includes an Interactive Transcript for any video that has closed captions. This feature can be enabled for any Embed Code, permalink, or portal.

With the Interactive Transcript you can view the scrolling transcript while watching the video, with current captions highlighted as the video plays.  You can also scroll through the transcript and click any word to play the video from that point.  The Interactive Transcript also enables you to search for a word, and wherever the word appears in the transcript you can click to play the video from that point
