Auto-captions for video are essential for a number of reasons. A closed captions generator assists with accessibility and provides a way for the millions of individuals worldwide that are hearing impaired to engage with your content. A video caption generator app can help boost SEO because Google can’t index audio. Auto captions for video increase engagement because most people view videos on their mobiles without sound.
Captions are the words visible on a movie, television or computer monitor showing what is being said in a video. Closed captions are predominately designed for people who are deaf or hard of hearing and frequently include non-verbal sounds such a laughter, applause or a door slamming.
The first step is to use a video caption generator app like Happy Scribe to convert the audio in your video to text and export the transcript as an SRT file. Then from your social media site, upload your video and SRT file.
The most popular (and widely accepted) caption formats are SRT and WebVTT. Accepted closed caption file formats vary depending on which site you’re using to host your videos. Vimeo lists WebVTT as its preferred format, but also accepts SRT files.YouTube and Facebook also accept SRT formats.
Essentially, subtitles assume an audience can hear the audio, but need the dialogue provided in text form as well. Meanwhile, closed captioning assumes an audience cannot hear the audio and needs a text description of what they would otherwise be hearing.
