Lighting, audio and storytelling are all essential when creating video-based content on your website. However, captions are often forgotten, even though they benefit more people than you might think.
You might assume that they’re just for the d/Deaf and hard of hearing people, but there are many benefits that can apply to many different people.
From sharing his own personal experience as a deaf person, to his experience in digital marketing and content marketing, Ahmed will share stories on how you, as a content creator, can maximise the impact of your videos by making use of captions. But it’s not just about writing “whatever is said”. It is an art.
