John Dalziel's insight:
Cliptomatic is an iPhone/iPad app that allows users to add live captions to their recorded videos. 
Cliptomatic is currently free. 
I've had a play and feel that Educators, especially those teaching languages, can use it for a wide variety of educational purposes; in particular when teaching pronunciation, writing, vocabulary and even reading. 
Cliptomatic could also be used in digital storytelling projects and video journals. 
To use Cliptomatic just...
  - install it
  - permit it to access your iPhone/iPad’s camera and microphone, 
  - click on the record button and start recording your video. 
Everything the user says will be displayed as captions accompanying their video. 
NOTE: Cliptomatic supports over 40 languages and users can select the speech recognition language right from within the app. 
Cliptomatic also offer various text styles and artistic filters to customise and enhance the videos. 
Once a videos is ready users can then share them...
  - via social media websites,
  - through email,
  - save them to their camera roll, or
  - upload them to their iCloud account. 
Cliptomatic users can record in Square or Full format and captions editing is easy: just tap any caption to change the text.

CaptionTube: a free tool for creating captions for YouTube videos.

After users import a YouTube video they own, they...
- play the video
- add captions as needed
- export the captions
- upload to YouTube.


By using Capture Tube, a free service, Learning Providers can now provide transcripts of videos they share with others and, if required, in different languages.


Practitioners can use CaptionTube to transcribe videos they share with their learners or the task could be given as an assignment for learners to work on. e.g. learners can be given a video and be told to use Capture Tube to caption it.


Why is it better than watching YouTube and editing my captions in a text editor?


CaptionTube provides improved precision with a scaleable timeline. You can also make changes to captions and preview them immediately. It also allows you to create multiple language tracks.


Capture Tube can also be used to illustrate tutorials and promote understanding of video content. The process isn't complicated and does not require any advanced technical skills.
