By adding closed captions to your videos, you allow more viewers to enjoy your content—even with the sound turned off.
Closed captions, also referred to as English subtitles, appear as text on the bottom of your screen, and typically represent the speech between characters on your television or computer.
Adding closed captions to your video is an essential component of production, especially if your goal is to get your video content in front of a larger audience. Closed captions not only help videos rank higher in search results, but they also increase accessibility, boost engagement, and improve the overall viewer experience.
To help video creators get the most out of their content, we offer accurate, quality closed captions for any video.
