Description

This course is not sponsored by or affiliated with Udemy, Inc.

Closed captioning is a subtitling system designed to make television more accessible to the hearing-impaired. Unlike movie subtitles, which are intended to translate dialogue for people who can hear the rest of the soundtrack, closed captions need to convey all important sound effects, music cues, nonverbal expressions, and dialogue that occur as a program plays. Subtitles and closed captions open up your content to a larger audience, including deaf or hard of hearing viewers or those who speak other languages.

This course will show you how to caption your Udemy Videos using a very easy and Free process. You'll learn how to make a closed caption file using very advanced software, that is free to use. This course will take you through the entire process step by step. In this course, I'll show you how I personally caption my videos, and how to adjust and tweak the timing of your caption files. I'll also show you how to upload those caption files to your Udemy course. Plus I'll show you the many benefits of captioning your videos. This course is for anyone who produces their own videos and would like to open up their videos to a broader viewing audience. It's also for anyone wanting to stay ahead of the new FCC rules requiring Captioning for most broadcasters.

Closed captioning is encoded in a variety of ways, depending on the video format. But in this course we will be teaching you how to make the ".srt" file format, which is compatible with your Udemy course videos.

This course will show you how to:

- Find a free captioning method
- How to use the free captioning method
