Captions visually display the spoken words in a video at the same time they are said and are a key component of accessible videos. Edlio provides automatic closed caption generation for every video uploaded through the Videos feature as part of annual subscription. Simply upload your video, confirm the language spoken in the video and Save. Allow up to an hour for the captions to appear in your video.
If the file is audio only then captions are not necessary, but transcripts are.
Transcripts allow people to read a text version of the content without playing the audio or video. Refreshable braille devices use transcripts to deliver video content. Additionally, transcripts give computers and search engines a way to search the content of the media making your media easier to find.
Edlio's captioning service automatically populates the Transcript area for Video feature. Users can edit Transcripts after captioning generation completes.
Audio descriptions provide additional information about what is visible on screen. If visual content is conveyed through audio then there is no need to add audio descriptions.
For content added through Edlio's Video feature:
Captions are generated automatically for videos and audio uploaded to the Edlio's Video feature.
Transcripts will be populated by the automatic closed captioning generation. You can edit a Transcript once it has successfully populated.
