Caption.Ed can be added as an extension to your Google Chrome or Microsoft Edge browser. This allows you to quickly transcribe media within your browser; from YouTube videos to online lectures. 

How to download the Caption.Ed Browser Extension 

Step 1: You can download and install the Google Chrome extension here, or the Microsoft Edge extension here

Step 2: Once you've installed and added to extension to your browser, the Caption.Ed logo should appear in the top right of the browser toolbar.

If the logo hasn't appeared, you may need to "Pin" it to your toolbar. Click to "Extensions" icon in the top left (the icon that looks like a jigsaw piece), and make sure the "Pin/View" icon for Caption.Ed is selected.
