Have a video that you need to make accessible, but don't have a clue how to start? This book will get you up and running in no time. It will show you how in layman's language how to go about the task of closed captioning your videos, what the different formats are, what software to use, and will also go over the basic style guidelines in creating captioned videos.

This book will help the reader to learn why videos should be captioned, what the different formats are and how to create them, the best software to use, and captioning style guidelines to use. It also provides helpful links to closed captioning-related sites.

Captioning video not only makes video accessible to the deaf and hard-of-hearing, but there are other compelling reasons for it as well. These are also good talking points to convince others of the need to caption video. • Captioned videos have better user retention of the video content. • The video’s transcripts are searchable, so you will get better Search Engine Optimization (SEO), which may give you a leg up on your competition. • Captioned video also opens your market reach to a whole new segment of paying customers - the deaf! • It’s the law. Many videos that are provided to the public must be captioned either due to federal communication law, or merely a company’s policy regarding accessibility. • Language learning relies heavily on captioned video. • If the viewer is in a noisy area and does not have access to headphones, the captions can be read while watching the video. • Similarly, if the viewer does not have headphones and cannot turn up the volume due to the need to keep noise to a minimum (like in a library or nursery), the captions are there to provide what is being spoken.
