Add Closed Captioning to YouTube Videos


YouTube Logo

With all the new laws on the books there are some considerations you need to keep in mind if you create or share YouTube videos. If you post links to YouTube clips on your website, share videos with parents, or make a YouTube link public in any way through your website you are required to have Closed Captioning enabled. You will need to do this to any video you share with the public that you make. The link below will help you enable Closed Captioning on any YouTube videos you have made so you are in compliance with this law.
