KZO Quick Tip: The benefits of closed captioning video

One of the biggest advantages of video is that it allows content creators to include closed captioning, which is essentially a way for viewers to watch a video with text or read a transcript that matches what is spoken on the video.

For this week’s quick tip, we’ll outline the major benefits of closed captioning video and how it can assist organizations.

Benefits of closed captioning video: Using closed captioning files in other languages can save your organization time and money. Closed captioning allows content creators to provide quality and successful videos without having to reproduce content in other languages, which can be a very time-consuming task.

How closed captioning video can assist organizations: In addition to translating the video into multiple languages, if a search engine can query the closed caption text, the viewer can find where within the video a particular subject is discussed. In addition, closed captioning allows organizations to connect with foreign partners and clients through video.
