Closed captions in Dropbox Capture

You can add auto-generated closed captions to any videos you create using Dropbox Capture. Closed captions make your content more accessible to viewers, including those with hearing disabilities or who can’t play audio. 

Enable/disable captions for videos you create

When you choose to enable or disable captions, you’re enabling/disabling captions for all of your Dropbox Capture videos. To enable/disable captions for your videos:

  1. Open Dropbox Capture.
  2. Click the “⁝” (vertical ellipsis) in the top-right.
  3. Click Preferences
  4. Toggle Generate closed captions on/off.

Note: If you’re on a Dropbox Business team and you don’t see the Generate closed captions setting, your admin has disabled captions.

Turn captions on/off for videos you watch

When you’re watching a video, click CC in the bottom right corner of the video player to turn captions on or off.

Note: In order to view captions, the video creator must have captions enabled. 

Admins: Disable captions for your team

Admins can disable captions for their entire team. To do this:

  1. Sign in to dropbox.com using your admin credentials.
  2. Click Admin console.
  3. Click Settings
  4. Click Capture
  5. Toggle Capture transcripts on/off. 
  6. Click Save.
