Check Closed Captioning on YouTube videos

YouTube uses speech recognition technology to automatically make captions available. If you upload videos to YouTube, take some time to check the closed captioning and fix the incorrect words. YouTube’s translator software does not always do the best job, and it sometimes can be comical.YouTube logo

It’s really easy to do. Follow the written instructions or watch the video instructions

You also can upload a script or other text and create your own captions and subtitles. Again, written and video instructions are available.

Captioning makes your content available to deaf and hard-of-hearing viewers, plus the text can be translated into multiple languages to reach an even larger audience. 

Also, transcribed videos rank higher in searches since they allow access to information in multiple formats.
