Accessing browser data

CaptionHub is a complicated application, relying on multiple browser technologies in order for it to work correctly. Occasionally that technology doesn't behave as it should.


In order to help us diagnose potential issues with your web browser, we occasionally ask our users to provide us with data from the Console. This process varies from browser to browser, and operating system to operating system. This guide aims to talk you through that process.
