Captions and Transcriptions added to my Getting Started with the Mac Lessons

I’ve added captions and transcriptions to my lessons on Getting Started with the Mac. These lessons are part of my Tutor for Mac, and they are designed to help you get started with your Mac. With these lessons, I look at how to tell which macOS you are using, the basics of getting around your Mac, working with windows on your Mac (not the Microsoft kind), as well as the folder structure of your Mac and how to use keyboard shortcuts. And now, they include captions and transcriptions.

Lessons included in Getting Started on the Mac:

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’ll be adding more captions on a regular basis. I’ll keep you posted. I hope you find them helpful!
