YouTube’s caption feature allows the video publisher to easily upload an additional file, in .sub or .srt formats, and will allow viewers to turn the caption track on or off as desired. “This is a win-win, especially for educational institutions” commented CJ Johnson, co-founder of 3Play Media. “YouTube takes the hosting cost and hassle out of the equation for a lot of organizations. Now that they support critical accessibility tools, schools will be more likely to turn to YouTube, opening up valuable educational content to the public.”
