Adding English Subtitles & Course Thumbnails

Written by weaverryan

Adding English Subtitles & Course Thumbnails

to as many people as possible, including tech beginners, students and non-native English speakers. Because... great tech should be available to everyone!

We already include the script content and our magic code blocks below each video for free. But we also wanted to make the video itself more accessible and easier to understand.

English Subtitles / Captions

That's why all new videos now ship with English subtitles! Just hover over the video and find the [CC] button in the bottom right. Couldn't quite understand that word or phrase we just said? Just turn on the subtitles and keep going! The captions include all the correct technical words and formatting.

Video Thumbnails while Seeking

Have you ever tried to find an exact part of a video? To make that easier, we've also added video thumbnails that show up as you move the cursor over timeline. Look around, find the spot you need, and go!

I hope these little upgrades will make your life just a little bit more awesome here on KnpUniversity. Have other suggestions? Let us know!

fist of all, thanks for your work, your videos are awesome!
But there is one annoying "feature" that appeared recently - quick video search by clicking the text. It is a great idea, but now I can't translate words by clicking on them - I just go to that part of the video :) Can I somehow disable that feature?

Hey Sergey Z.!

Ah, that makes sense! There is not currently a way to disable this - I think the typical use-case is that people will translate the entire page (but your use-case also makes sense).

I can't guarantee it would work forever, but you can open your browser console and run this code to disable that:

Is it possible to add the subtitle to the download of the video?

Hey guquinteros

Nice suggestion! Currently, we do offer a way for downloading the subtitles, but that's something that we will deliver in a near future
