The new transcription and captions alternative in Loom could be useful to teachers who are currently utilizing Loom and want to improve the availability of their educational videos. The captions are handy to trainees who have hearing problems but also to students who might be viewing the videos in a location where they can not play the videos aloud and dont have ready access to headphones.

Applications for Education.

In the last year Ive made a few tutorials about different ways to utilize Loom. Looms transcription tool will immediately develop an English records of your videos. Any videos that are transcribed will also have captions added to them when viewed. Loom likewise introduced a new Android app at the end of March. In short, Looms Android app is not something I d suggest utilizing at this time.

Loom is one of
my preferred Chrome extensions for making brief guide videos. In the in 2015 Ive made a few tutorials about various ways to use Loom. A few of those consist of
recording videos from your Gmail inbox and
making whiteboard videos..

Loom recently added 2 new functions. Those are a transcription/ captions tool and an Android app..
Looms transcription tool will automatically create an English transcript of your videos. Any videos that are transcribed will also have captions contributed to them when viewed. Captions and transcriptions are a beta feature today so not all accounts have them at this time. You can learn more about the transcription and caption function here..
Loom also introduced a brand-new Android app at the end of March. I have actually now installed it and uninstalled it two times. It is expected to make it simple to tape screencasts on your Android phone. However, both times that I attempted it the log-in function didnt work if I utilized Google single sign-on (it put me into an unlimited loop of asking to validate my log-in with my phone). As soon as I lastly signed in by producing an entirely brand-new account without making use of Google single sign-on the recording function was cumbersome at best. The recording would start, however it wasnt obvious that it had actually begun and it wasnt obvious how to stop the recording. When it did stop, I could not discover the recording anywhere. Simply put, Looms Android app is not something I d recommend utilizing at this time. Possibly youll have better luck than I did on my Pixel 5..
