Interactive Transcripts in Films on Demand

One of Palomar College's media databases, Films on Demand, recently launched a useful new feature. Interactive transcripts allow you to view the full text of the video as it plays, search for keywords and jump to that spot in the video and print the text of videos.

As seen in this image, if there is a tab on the video that says "Transcript," this feature is available and easy to use. Also, Films on Demand is adding transcripts to videos every month.

If you have any questions about this feature, you can see the "Help" screen in the database, or contact a Palomar College Librarian.
