Frequently Asked Questions
What are captions?
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 as laughter, applause, or a door slamming.
Why do I need automatic captioning?
Automatic captioning for video is essential for many 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.
What is the difference between subtitles and closed captions?
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.
How do I generate captions for videos on social media?
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.
What are the most used caption formats?
The most popular (and widely accepted) caption formats are SRT and VTT. Accepted closed caption file formats vary depending on which site you’re using to host your videos. Vimeo lists VTT as its preferred format but also accepts SRT files. YouTube and Facebook also accept SRT formats.
