Subtitles for YouTube Videos

Subtitles/Captions on YouTube Videos

If you have ever been to YouTube to watch videos on a regular basis you may have come across subtitles on videos.

You may have noticed some are in gibberish, annoying and they have spoiled your user enjoyment of the YouTube video.

You may or may not know how to turn captions on/off as a viewer and so just avoid the YouTube videos with captions/subtitles.

One Big Mistake on YouTube Videos

The biggest mistake I see quite often with YouTube videos and it is one I am guilty of as well, is that as a channel owner we do not set our subtitles/caption options correctly. What does this mean well simply put when we upload our videos the subtitles could seem to be gibberish.

Conclusion

So let us all take a moment to familiarise ourselves with our user dashboards on YouTube to make sure we don’t make simple mistakes that take away from our visitors user experiences.

So I have done a short tutorial video that walks through the basics of subtitles/captions on YouTube videos from both sides of the fence.

As a YouTube visitor/viewer and as a channel owner.
