QOTD: Why Add Captions Your Videos?

As a kid, I always watched movies and television with captions or subtitles. My parents, bless their hearts, thought I was weird. Little did they know, I was just ahead of the game.

Here are some statistics for you:

  • 85% of Facebook videos are muted when watched.
  • Captioned videos have up to 16% higher engagement online.
  • Over 28 million American adults are either deaf or hard of hearing.

THAT’S A LOT OF STATS

But adding subtitles to your videos online has other benefits, as well. For example, Google will index added captions for SEO, which gives your videos a great search boost. Add to that the increased views and longer engagement, and you can see why more and more businesses are subtitling their videos.
