This has been coming up more often as an increasing number of our clients are taking advantage of the enhanced SEO possibilities of adding captioning to YouTube videos, not to mention the access to millions of deaf and hard-of-hearing consumers, so I thought I would do a quick tutorial on the process. We do the heavy lifting, but each YouTube channel owner must attach the captioning files that we provide – we do not have access to your account to do these steps.
Step 1: Make sure you know where your text file containing the captions is – this will end in the three letter extension “SRT”
Step 2: Log into your account, click your user name at the top of the screen, and then the “Videos” link.
Step 3: Find the video to which you’d like to attach closed-captioning, and click the “Edit Info” button.
Step 4: Click the “Captions and Subtitles” link.
Step 5: Click the “Add New Captions or Transcript” button and upload your SRT file.
It sounds harder than it is, so please give it a try and don’t hesitate to call us at 405-842-3343 ext. 105 if we can help in any way. Have fun and good captioning!
