This is an ongoing project, started in July 2020, with the aim of providing English captions to videos hosted on the mathcentre website.
We have auto-generated captions for many of the videos already but these need to be corrected. You can use the mathcentre videos with auto-generated captions at your own risk. If you search for videos on the mathcentre website you will only see these in the results if you have set the search to include resources for staff, as well as students.
Yes! Although in some cases you might need to have a certain level of mathematical knowledge to make the corrections. If you correct a caption file then please only mark it as ready for students if you are sure about all of the corrections. If you need advice you should contact firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also email this address if you want more information about the project.
The caption files are hosted on a site called Amara, the videos played on Amara remain hosted on mathcentre. Before having a go please watch the short Introduction to the Amara editor video at this link.
