Why YouTube Creators Should Post Videos #WithCaptions

YouTube has over one billion unique users a month. Together they watch 6 billion hours of videos. That’s a serious amount of videos being watch and information being shared. But, unfortunately, this information is not accessible to everyone. Over 1 million people speak ASL (American Sign Language) and don’t hear what is being said in these videos.

So, what can we do about this? People who speak ASL are visual communicators – YouTube makes it easy to add closed captions to your videos. Add captions and join the movement.

Make your next YouTube video #WITHCAPTIONS – change the way YouTubers connect with their audience, and help make your favorite videos accessible to even more people.
