Closed captioning and subtitling

Closed captioning and subtitling

SDH subtitle is a separate file with the help of special tools offered by platforms such as Facebook, YouTube, Vimeo and so on. The main advantages of such subtitles:

  • they can be turned on and off using a button marked with two letters – “CC” (abbreviation of the English term “closed captions”);
  • they adapt to the screen size of the device;
  • they can be created online or uploaded as a separate file (the most common file extensions for subtitles are SRT and SBV);
  • they can be downloaded (they are useful when creating a text transcript);
  • they can be created at any time (they do not have to be published immediately with the video);
  • errors in them can be corrected at any time and also online (changes are made only to the subtitles, not to the whole video file).
 
Example of good captioning practice. The image shows the so-called "closed" subtitles created on a YouTube platform. Their text is easy to read because the font size and color contrast are optimal. If corrections needed to be made to these subtitles, they could be done quickly and easily online.

Professional way to make captions or subtitles

There are also closed captioning and subtitling programs that allow you to create the necessary subtitles in the hands of a professional. Before inserting them into the content of streaming movies and TV series or social platforms and handing them over to movie distributors, you need to ensure absolutely appropriate synchronization with the running video material and properly choose the background color and font of the subtitles.
