YouTube Gets Support for Closed Captioning

YouTube now provides users the option of selecting closed captions for online video content. Caption files that have text dialogue can be uploaded during the time of upload or afterwards on the YouTube website. YouTube also offers multiple language support to let viewers swap between different languages of a single video without having to leave playback.

Several content providers have begun including closed captioning in their videos, including CNET, MIT, and the BBC. On YouTube, all videos with closed captioning have it as an option in the lower right-hand corner menu. For more information on the closed captioning on YouTube, go to:;title#comments
