Brief Description:

User Impact:
* Current caption-editing tool (provided through a third-party vendor) will be replaced with a new simplified and easier-to-use caption editing tool provided by Kaltura which will function within the VOD instead of launching to a third-party website. * The transcript widget will change, again from a third-party widget to one provided by Kaltura, which has slight cosmetic differences. * Overall quality of machine captions are expected to improve (change in third-party captioning vendor used by Kaltura for their machine captions). * Some menu names and headers in the navigation interfaces related captions will change slightly (terms changing, some navigation options consolidated).
