The CaptionSync Smart Player™ is an innovative and efficient way to deliver captioned and described video to end users. For over four years the Smart Player has received rave reviews from educators, thanks to its interactive features that leverage transcript and caption data to create a more engaging experience for learners. Learners can select individual words in the transcript to jump to the specific point in the video or look up words in a dictionary or encyclopedia. The CaptionSync Smart Player incorporates Universal Design for Learning (UDL) principles by providing both additional representations of the video content and additional ways to engage with
the content.
