How To: Add Subtitles To Your Facebook Videos

What are subtitles?

How are they made?

Why is it important to add subtitles?

  • It’s inclusive and gives people with hearing impairments access to your content.
  • Not everyone absorbs everything they listen to — seeing text can help people absorb your message more completely.
  • You can translate your message to other languages by transcribing into other languages.
  • If you’re using YouTube, adding captions gives you a little SEO boost.
  • Recycle that content — having a transcript means you can more easily repurpose the video content into other mediums like a blog or infographic. Nice!
