Captions serve multiple purposes and can be beneficial for a variety of reasons:
Accessibility for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing People: captions provide a text version of the audio content, making videos and other audio-visual content accessible to those people who are deaf or hard of hearing.
Compliance with Regulations: many jurisdictions require captions for certain types of content, especially public broadcasts and educational materials, to ensure they are accessible to everyone.
Enhanced Learning and Comprehension: especially in educational settings, captions can aid in understanding and retaining information. They can be particularly helpful for complex topics or when unfamiliar jargon is used.
Multitasking and Noisy Environments: in places with a lot of background noise, such as gyms or cafes, or even in quiet settings like offices where people might not want to disturb others, captions allow viewers to follow along without needing sound.
Language Learning: for people learning a new language, captions in that language can help improve listening comprehension and vocabulary acquisition.
SEO Benefits: videos with captions are more likely to be picked up by search engines because the content is indexed. This can drive more traffic to websites or platforms hosting the videos.
Wider Audience Reach: captions can expand the audience of a video. Not everyone watches videos with sound, especially on social media platforms where videos might autoplay on mute.
Clarification: if the audio quality is poor, or if speakers have strong accents that some viewers might find difficult to understand, captions can help clarify the spoken content.
Improved Engagement: studies have shown that videos with captions often have better engagement metrics, including longer watch times.
Flexibility for Viewers: some people simply prefer reading captions while listening, especially if they are visual learners or if they're watching content in a setting where they can't use headphones.

Captions are text that appears on a video or audio recording to provide a transcription of the spoken language. They are also used to describe other sounds in the recording, such as music, sound effects, and ambient noise. Captions are an important accessibility feature for people who are deaf or hard of hearing, and they can also be helpful for people who are watching videos in a noisy environment or who are learning a new language. For a deeper understanding of captions, we invite you to explore our comprehensive guide here.
There are two main types of captions: closed captions and open captions.
Closed captions are textual representations of audio and video content, toggleable by viewers. Commonly found on TV and streaming platforms, they cater to the deaf and hard of hearing and are sometimes legally mandated. Typically auto-generated, they can also be manually created. Conversely, open captions are permanently embedded into videos, aiding language learners and those wanting constant text, but lacking the flexibility of closed captions.
Captions: Generally in the same language as the audio. Provide a text version of all significant audio content, including spoken words, sound effects, and musical cues.
Subtitles: Often a translation, making spoken content accessible to people who speak another language.
