Caption Your Youtube Videos In 4 Easy Steps

Aaron Johnson Published on Jan 27, 2020

Captioning your Youtube videos isn’t just about letting people who are hard of hearing view your content.

When you caption your videos you can reach a much larger audience, who for a variety of reasons, don’t want to view with the sound on.

For example: 85% of Facebook viewers view videos with captions on, and adding captions more than doubled the organic reach of videos.

Maestra allows you to automatically caption your videos in just minutes.

Here’s how to do it in 3 easy steps:

1 Sign up for Maestra, then Click the “+ New Caption” to create a new caption:

2 Select the file that you’d like to upload, then click “Next.” You can also trim your file to your preferred length:

3 You’re almost there! Choose the language that you’d like you file to be captioned in, then select the number of speakers who are present in the file, click “Submit” to continue.

4 Once your file is finished loading, click on the file to open it. You’ll see a preview screen where you can adjust the sentence length by moving the slider. You can always adjust the sentences later, but this is just to make things a bit easier:

You can easily edit your captions for any mistakes. Once you’re done editing, you can automatically translate them to new languages, or export them in multiple formats!
