Demystifying Captions

Have you ever watched a YouTube video with closed captions turned on and felt just completely frustrated by the experience? Ever try editing closed captions only to be equally frustrated by timings and character counts that you throw your hands up and say “let the computer generate the captions!”?

This session aims to reduce the frustration of creating and editing captions (which in turn, reduces the frustration your audience feels when watching your media with closed captions turned on). 

We will cover writing closed captions for videos, formatting closed captions for videos, and we will take a look at how social media is disrupting traditional captioning (and how you can take advantage of that disruption).
