Close captioning is a great way to make videos more accessible to viewers who are hard of hearing or deaf. Unfortunately, it can often be tricky to implement with your own videos, and there are plenty of issues that you may encounter. This article will discuss 5 of the most common issues associated with close captioning your own videos, so you can be better prepared for the task.
Issue 1: Finding the Time to Do It
Close captioning is a very time-consuming process and it is often difficult to find time to do it in your own schedule. Not only does it take time to actually add the captions, but you also have to watch the video while creating the captions, which can take significantly longer than the actual captioning. It’s a good idea to break the video down into smaller parts, so you can work on it in more manageable chunks, but it still takes a lot of time to get the job done.
