Edit Auto-Captions on YuJa Videos

Last updated on April 30, 2024

Videos uploaded to YuJa receive automatic captions, though it may take a few hours for them to appear after processing. This is an excellent feature which will save you lots of time! However, not all of the captions will be accurate- it’s a computer and cannot know your exact vocab or speech perfectly. Thankfully, editing the transcript files is quick and easy and takes much less time than writing the transcript from scratch.

      • Delete that extra info “_edited“, and click on Replace Existing Video to save over the video you just edited. We recommend this method in most circumstances.
