What Are Additional Closed Caption Settings?

YouTube provides a range of caption settings that you can use to make your videos more accessible. In this section, we’ll discuss the different settings and how to access them.

Closed captions are text tracks that are synchronized with audio or video content. They can be turned on or off by the viewer, and they’re great for people who are deaf or hard of hearing.

There are a few different ways to access closed caption settings:

Select “Subtitles/CC (1)” from the drop-down menu that appears when you click on the gear button, which is the third in the bottom-right corner of the video.

When you choose this option, YouTube will display which subtitles are available to you. It also allows you to turn off closed captioning and use automatically generated subtitles translated via Google Translate.

You’ll also have the option of selecting your preferred language when you pick the latter choice.

Finally, you may modify the caption style by selecting the “Options” option. This brings up a menu where you can choose between different fonts and text sizes, as well as adjust the opacity of the captions.

Making your videos accessible is important, and YouTube’s closed caption settings make it easy to do so. Try out these settings and see how they work for you!

Font family: By using this option you can change the font of your subtitles

Font color: With this option, you can change the color of your subtitles

Font opacity: This will allow you to make the text more or less visible

Font size: You can adjust the size of the text in the captions

Background color: You can change the background color of your subtitles

Reset: If you want to go back to the default settings, press this button.

You may also use the “Video Override” option in the lower-right corner of each video’s screen to enable one of these alternatives. This sets the options to those suggested by the video uploader if there are any (there usually aren’t).
