I’ve added captions and transcriptions to my lessons on working with specific macOS features. These lessons are part of my Tutor for Mac, and they are designed to help you get acquainted with some of the features macOS has to offer. These lessons include how to work with notifications and the Notification Center, as well as the Today view and it’s widgets. From there, I take a quick look at Siri. I then look at Mission Control. if you are not familiar with Mission Control, you may want to look at that lesson. Mission Control not only helps you manage multiple windows on your Mac, but also how to work with spaces or multiple desktops. Then then cover opening two apps in full screen mode side-by-side through Split view. I start wrapping it up with how to share files with AirDrop, and end with iCloud options.
Lessons to help you work with specific features on your Mac include:
- Notifications and the Notification Center
- Working with the Today View
- Using Siri
- Using Mission Control
- Using Split View
- Sharing Files with AirDrop
- iCloud Options
So how do the captions work? While watching the video, you just click or tap on the CC in the playbar of the video.From there you can choose to show captions. The captions are in available only in English.
What about the transcriptions? The transcription makes it easy to see, or read, what the video is about. It also makes the search on my site more robust. Now when you search for a term, any lesson with that term or terms in the transcript, will show up in your results. So if I mention it in the video, you’ll be able to search for it. I have most of the transcript hidden by default, you’ll see about 3 lines of the transcript below the video description. Click on ‘Show all the Transcript’ to view the entire transcript.
I am adding more captions and transcriptions on a regular basis. I’ll keep you posted. I hope you find them helpful!
