[Athen] Word-for-word vs meaning-for-meaning captioning

In my experiences, students have preferred the meaning-for-meaning most of
the time. Verbatim can be difficult when following a discussion flow due to
the volume. However, depending on the course (such as very technical
courses), verbatim is sometimes a better option. We've not had any students
requesting verbatim for several years. When it comes to receiving
transcripts (for notes), verbatim captioning are often too much information
for students to wade through and M4M are most popular.

Kind regards,
