Multi-language captions

Add captions to improve accessibility

It is increasingly important to add closed captions to your videos to make sure the content is accessible. Therefore all business video hosting packages include the ability to add captions to your videos. You can do this within the admin panel, or import them from a file.

Create captions

Sign in to the admin panel and click on the video you would like to add captions to. Scroll down and you should see a tab for its captions. Click on that and you should be given the option of adding a set of captions to that video. Often you will only have one set (in English) but the platform allows your business to add captions in multiple languages should you wish to.

The built-in captions manager is very simple. Play the video for a few moments, pause it, and then in the three boxes enter the start time, the end time, and the line of text to show during that period. When you click on the ‘+’, that line is added to the list. You can simply repeat that process for the rest of your video.
