Social media platforms like Facebook and LinkedIn actually offer you the ability to upload video along with a separate captions file (i.e., .SRT file). Other platforms (e.g., Twitter, Instagram, etc.) will allow you to share video, but you will need to burn the captions into the video before uploading it (i.e., open captions).

Additional Resources:

  • Creating Accessible Multimedia Content
  • VEED.io* (can generate auto-subtitles)
    • VEED.io offers a quick and easy way to produce burned-in captions for short video clips. The free account allows you to creating burned-in captions for clips less than 10-minutes, but videos are watermarked with VEED.io. An upgraded account allows for removal of the watermark and the ability to work with longer video content. You can then upload the video clips directly to any social media platform.
