Benefits of captions

Increased seach engine traffic

There are definite SEO benefits from captioned video for at least some services/search engines. If nothing else, posting the video transcript with the video will ensure that your video content can be indexed by search engines. Use closed captions or transcripts as meta data to make your video text-searchable, and to make web-embedded video search engine friendly.

Increased Usability for Everyone

With the increasing popularity of mobile devices, viewers may be in environments where access to the audio is limited. Closed captioning allows them to view content whether they are in the library, at a concert or on a noisy bus.
