If you’re looking for courses that feature subtitles, this article outlines how you can locate them, and see which type of subtitles they include. Most subtitles are available in the course's spoken language, but some courses also offer subtitles in multiple languages.
Types of Subtitles
To help make course content more accessible to students around the world, Udemy creates auto-generated, English, Spanish and Portuguese subtitles for videos lectures that are instructed in these respective languages. The auto-generated subtitles are created using speech recognition technology. If a course has auto-generated subtitles available, then “auto-generated” will appear beside the closed captions icon.
We're always working to improve the quality of subtitles on Udemy. If you have any questions or concerns regarding the subtitles, please contact our support team.
If the instructor has uploaded subtitles to their course, this will also be indicated beside the “CC” icon, along with the language of the subtitles.
