Today we're releasing a new video player control bar with a refreshed design and new functionality that allows viewers to access transcripts while in the video experience. You don't need to take any action; your players will update automatically.
The upgraded player control bar improves the viewer experience by making it easier for viewers to interact with the player. It's more user-friendly to toggle the progress bar, control the volume, and find the closed captioning, transcript, and full-screen icons. We're also offering an optional transcript button. Now, viewers with vision or hearing disabilities can open the transcript directly from the control bar. If you'd like to activate this functionality, please reach out to your success manager who will facilitate the process.
