We have successfully pushed an updated Software Capture for PC binary to all instances residing in the US, Canada and the European Union. This update includes dozens of fixes and improvements based on field log data available from the previous two versions of the new Capture Engine (released in February of this year). Additionally, new capabilities include a Microsoft PowerPoint Ribbon add-in, a new installation option that does not require local admin rights, a new mouse effect optimized for instruction, and a number of WCAG 2.1-aligned color contrast improvements.
- New Microsoft PowerPoint Ribbon Add-On for Automatically Starting and Stopping the Recording
The YuJa Software Capture application can be installed as a Ribbon within Microsoft PowerPoint to provide users with a more seamless recording experience. The Ribbon will allow users to automatically sync the start and end of the recording with their presentation session.
- Recording Sessions Can Now Be Extended Via the Devices Tab
We added a capability to the Devices tab to remotely extend recordings within the Video Platform for registered installations. With a simple click of a button, Admins and Sub-Admins can extend remote recordings.
- New Installer Option for Non Local Admin Windows Users
The Alternate Installer will allow users who do not have local administrative rights on their computer to install and change settings within YuJa Software Capture. For those with local administrative permissions, we still recommend downloading the Express Installer to take full advantage of the Software Capture application’s asynchronous upload capability even when logged off.
- Option for an Mouse Effect When the Presenter Clicks on the Screen
We have implemented an enhancement to the screen recording that can improve the instructional value of a video by providing a small highlight when the Presenter clicks on the screen.
- Customizable Low Disk Space Warning
To ensure that users have the appropriate disk space on their device for their recording, we have implemented an improved feature for monitoring device storage. Users can enable and select the threshold of when they would like to be notified if their disk space is running low.
- Option for On-Screen Pause Indicator
To provide a clear reminder for the Presenter when a recording is paused, we have added an option for an on-screen indicator to let Presenters know when they have paused their recording.
- Improved UI Color Scheme Aligned with WCAG 2.1
Continuing to stand firm on our promise to make learning accessible to students from a variety of accessible needs, we have further optimized the color palette for our toggle buttons and text to support users with visual difficulties. This will allow users to easily recognize when they have enabled certain devices for their Video, Audio, Screen, and Live sources.
- Minor Keyboard Accessibility Improvement Aligned with WCAG 2.1
We have improved navigating the Login menu through the Enter key, as well as the ability to select entries more uniformly.
