If the social media platform doesn’t provide functionality to add closed captions for video, explore one of the following options before you post:

  • Add open captions (burn-in captions). Open captions are always on and are formatted and placed by the video editor. If open captions are used, they should not obscure or obstruct relevant information in the video.
  • Repurpose the caption space to provide a video transcript, including quotes, dialogue, and descriptions of the action.
