Users with paid accounts will have captions added automatically on any new video uploads.
Closed captions are specifically for people who choose to watch with the sound off—maybe because they’re hard of hearing or in a public place—and want to know background sounds and speaker changes. Auto subtitles don’t contain that info.
Thanks to the closed captioning software on Vimeo paid accounts, captions are generated for your videos automatically, boosting accessibility and search ranking. But you can always fine-tune the captions if necessary.
Open captions are always visible and cannot be toggled off. But closed captions—which are what our closed captioning software provides—can be turned on or off.
Accessible videos are made so that as many viewers as possible can enjoy them. These videos typically have open or closed captions, transcripts, audio descriptions, and are shown on a player that viewers can easily use.
Every time you upload a video to Vimeo, we automatically transcribe the dialogue and make closed captioning available for your viewers. If you’re on a premium or enterprise account, we offer closed captioning for your live streamed videos—so you can make your virtual events and webinars more accessible to all.
