Adding Closed Captions to Your YouTube Videos

This video explains how to manually add Closed Captions to videos uploaded to your YouTube account. YouTube also has an automatic captioning feature, but you will need to edit the transcription for errors.

Automatic Closed Captions

YouTube will add captions automatically to your videos within 24 hours. However, the accuracy of automatic captioning is hit or miss, and you will need to edit the captions under the Subtitles and CC tab in your Video Manager.

Searching YouTube for Closed Captioned Videos
