Captions and transcripts are important tools for making media accessible to individuals with hearing, visual, or processing impairments.
What are Captions?
Captions are a text-based alternative to the audio content of a video. They provide a way for individuals who are deaf or hard-of-hearing to understand and enjoy the video content, and are also useful for individuals who are not native speakers of the language spoken in the video or who have difficulty processing spoken language.
What are Transcripts?
A text transcript is a written version of the audio content in a video or audio file. It provides a way for individuals who are deaf or hard-of-hearing to understand and enjoy the audio content, and is also helpful for individuals who may have difficulty processing spoken language or who want to review the content in written form.

A Word From James Warnken
“In a world where content is king, it is more important than ever to make sure everyone can access and enjoy the content you spend time, money, and resources to produce.
Whether it be a podcast, a YouTube video, or a full-length movie, it should always be paired with alternatives like captions, transcripts, and audio descriptions. “
