You can always manually upload a caption file (Warpwire supports WebVTT and SRT) if you already have one, or can creation captions yourself, using Aegisub.

Otherwise, you can Request Caption.

If your institution has a relationship with one of the third-party caption providers Warpwire supports, then users can request closed captions for videos, and institutional administrators can approve or deny the requests.

If you click "Request Caption" and your institution does not have third party captions set up, you'll see a "Your institution is not set up to request closed caption processing." message.

If your institution does have third party captions set up, when you click "Request Caption" button, you'll be taken to a window to verify your request.

Once you've created your request, you'll see a "Caption Request successfully submitted" message. Click "Done" to return to the previous page.

Once you've requested a caption, you should see a new "View Caption Requests" button on the caption page.
