Why Use Closed Captioning Services?
Closed captions are essential for people who are deaf or hard of hearing. This allows anyone to be able to watch your content and understand every bit of it. Additionally, some people enjoy watching show with closed captions because it allows them to better understand background noise that might be important to the plot. Not to mention, some accents can be difficult to understand, and closed captioning allows viewers to understand everything.
Subtitles vs Closed Captions
Subtitles are not the same as closed captions. Usually, subtitles are for people who do not understand the language of the audio. They have a direct translation of what is being said but will not have any audio description. Closed captions, on the other hand, are usually displayed in the same language as the audio of the program or movie. They are very helpful if you are in an environment where it can be difficult to listen what you are watching.
