Who creates the CC for the Treehouse videos?

It seems rather obvious that you have an automatic tool to do that, but which is it?

Assuming you mean the code challenges (?), the teachers build them as part of the course development. It's actually a pretty complex process!

i don't know how exactly the answer checker is working but i'm assuming it's using some kind of interpreters. if you write a correct answer in a different way the engine will point it as a wrong one :'(

No, sorry, Nathan, I should have been clearer with my question. I meant who creates the caption or subtitle files for all the videos, because sometimes the caps show something like "vertical access" when talking about a "vertical axis" that's why I guessed there is an automatic tool to do that.


Don't worry, I was just wondering that when i saw the video

Thnx anyway! ;)

No one... It's an automated program. Similar to youtube's cc

It's too good to be automated to be honest. Youtube's cc is terrible and rather displays random words than actual subtitles.
