Adding subtitles and captions to your videos on YouTube can greatly influence their ranking in search engines. It's one of the best search engine optimizations you can do to increase viewership, gain an audience, and give your videos more exposure. Plus, when you have transcription files in multiple languages, it causes YouTube to feature and highlight your videos in even more spaces in other countries.

But the reason most of us probably don't create transcripts of our videos and convert them into caption and subtitle files is because it sounds time consuming, difficult, and we don't know how to do it in the first place.

    Even easier - Did you write a script for your video? Use that. I cant tell you how many clients I've worked with that want transcription but forget that they create scripts for every video in the first place.

    We have done this for Intel for sometime. Even with a name like Intel they are using the tools to climb the EEO ladder and be seen by their customers.
