How To Create English (United States) Captions

English (United States) is the primary language in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia, and New Zealand. It is also spoken in many other countries around the world. According to the 2020 census, English (United States) is the most commonly spoken language in the United States, with over 250 million people speaking the language.

Creating captions for audio and video in the English (United States) language is an important part of making content accessible to all. Captions allow viewers who are deaf or hard of hearing to understand and engage with your content. They also make your content more searchable and can even boost your SEO rankings.

What Are Captions?

Captions are text that appears on the screen while a video or audio is playing. They usually follow the dialogue and other audio cues, allowing viewers to understand the content. Captions are different than subtitles, which are usually used to translate content into another language.

Benefits of Transcription and Creating Captions

There are many benefits to transcribing audio and video content and creating captions in the English (United States) language. First and foremost, it makes your content accessible to a much larger audience. People who are deaf or hard of hearing can understand your content without needing to turn on subtitles.

Creating captions also improves the discoverability of your content. People are more likely to watch a video if they can read the captions, and search engines are more likely to rank your content if it contains captions. Captions also make it easy to share your content across various platforms, as many platforms require captions for videos.
