DESCRIPTION

Captions are text that is time-synched with video. They are used to convey all spoken content and non-speech elements. Accessibility laws have now made captioning law applicable to online video that previously aired on TV. On YouTube, you have to select why you are not uploading captions through the caption certification dropdown in the advanced settings. Captions provide: - Accessibility for the deaf and hard of hearing - Accessibility for ESL viewers - Search, SEO, and discoverability - The ability to repurpose for content marketing - Navigation - Flexibility to view anywhere, such as noisy environments or offices - A basis for translation, allowing you to reach a global audience Unfortunately, YouTube's auto captions are not accurate enough to be indexed by search or provide accessibility; you must upload captions to get those benefits. This slideshow will take you through how to upload captions to your YouTube videos. The fastest, easiest way to add professional captions to your YouTube videos is through CaptionsForYouTube.com.
