Include captions in videos

Custom code
Check as complete

Captions allow Deaf or hard of hearing people to access audio content. Some video services like YouTube use an algorithm to automatically generate captions. This is a fast but often ineffective method, as the captions are often incorrect.

A more inclusive approach is to use a custom video player, like Able Player or Plyr.io, that includes custom captions created specifically for your video.
