How do Live Captions work?
While recording a class or lecture, students can follow along via captions directly in Glean. When enabled, captions will appear a couple of lines at a time, and will disappear as new audio is recorded.
After class, students can still transcribe their whole class in the same way they do now.

Working with Live Captions
We’ve created a short demonstration video to show you and your students how easy it is to use Live Captions in Glean.
While recording a class or lecture, they can click the Live Captions button and Glean will automatically start captioning verbal content.
How can you give your students access to Live Captions?
Live Captions are only available as an add-on to the Glean for Education package. If you’re already a Glean customer, speak to your Customer Success Manager about gaining access.
If you’re on another package such as Glean Teams, or are still using Sonocent Audio Notetaker, you can visit the link below to learn more about upgrading, or contact us directly.
We've put together a selection of FAQs to answer any questions you might have at this stage.
Will you be adding live transcription?
We are continually evolving how Glean makes in-class content more accessible based on student and department feedback. While there are no firm plans at this time, this is something we may introduce in the future.
How accurate are Live Captions?
We cannot currently provide accuracy figures for Live Captions. Due to the potential variance in the acoustic quality of recordings, we need to analyse real-world performance over a large sample size before we can provide such figures.
What is the delay between the teacher speaking and the transcript being generated?
The delay is approximately between 300 and 500 milliseconds.
Streamline your accommodations
Now that Glean supports live captioning, you no longer need a separate tool alongside Glean. Instead, you can utilise Glean to help all of your students achieve their full potential.
