Is It Closed Captions?

We have shipped a feature that improves transcript processing!

In podcast namespace specification, transcripts can simply contain the words spoken during the podcast or additionally have timestamps associated with those words, making the transcript a closed captions file.

From today, when you upload a transcript file, we will automatically detect if it is a closed captions file and mark it accordingly in the feed for podcast players. For this detection, we will use a combination of the file type and sometimes the contents of the file.
