Many Kanopy films have interactive captions. When captions are available a "CC" button appears next to the film's title. Once you click "play" you will see options for turning the captions on or off near the closed captions icon, on the lower right side of the viewer.
Films that do not yet have captions will have the "CC" icon crossed out to indicate that captions are not available. In these cases, you can place a "captions request" for films that do not yet have captions. To do so, click on the crossed out "CC" icon and a request form will appear.
Transcripts are available for many, but not all, Kanopy films. To launch transcripts, hover over the "More" button in the panel underneath the video player.
