Why you need subtitles to boost your video strategy

Expert James Jameson from CaptionHub tells us why subtitles play a crucial role in a video strategy...The decision to use subtitles has always, until recent years, been one of practicality or necessity. For example, foreign language films that are being distributed globally, programming for the hard of hearing, and even documentary style programmes where the speech is muffled or difficult to understand.

Why do you need CaptionHub?

Sure, you can use YouTube or any of the many free or low cost solutions to roughly auto-transcribe your video. And if you’re a social influencer or prosumer, then something is better than nothing. But just because something is free or cheap, it doesn’t make it better. And more importantly, as an enterprise organisation there are many other considerations aside from the monthly subscription cost. Our mission at CaptionHub is to be the best online technology solution for subtitling for global enterprises.
