Automatic text version of subtitled video with Transcript Widget

With Transcript Widget in KTH Play, a text version, also called transcription, of a subtitled video is created automatically. This means that all subtitles are placed in a box under the video player and it is possible to click through the video by clicking on words in the text. This feature makes videos searchable, increases accessibility and simplifies for those who only want to see parts of the video.
