The Society aims to provide automatically-generated captions for all event recordings. The captions appear as text at the bottom of the video which you can toggle on and off. The accuracy of automatically-generated captions varies depending on the audio quality, any specialist language used and the speaker. They are therefore unlikely to be 100% accurate and the Society does not edit or correct automatically-generated captions.
