To support students impacted by COVID-19 travel restrictions, the University has enabled automatic machine-generated transcripts for all lecture recordings in 2020. 

Note: The transcripts are machine-generated and their accuracy varies with the audio quality of the recording and the level of technical language used. Students are advised that transcripts are ‘best effort’, and should not be treated as a substitute for the original audio or any text content provided.

Note: In some courses you may also be provided with lecture slides, notes and the transcript as a separate file.
