Now, in PowerPoint we can add ClosedCaptions to our Presentations. Why should we bother to AddClosedCaptions?
First, to gain a larger audience
Secondly, we reach out to people with hearing disabilities
and Thirdly, we reach out to people who speak other languages other than the one in our Video.
In order to find out how to Insert Captionson a Video in a PowerPoint Presentation just continue reading.
We must select the Insert tab and from the right area of the ribbon named Multimedia, we locate the command Video as shown in the image below.
Once we select the Video command, the drop down menu appears with the commands OnlineVideo and VideosonMyPC, where we can select from in order to insert a Video in our Slide.
In the image below, I have already inserted a Video on my Slide. Once the Video is in the Slide and selected the VideoTools main tab appears, which is separated by two sub-tabs: the Format tab and the Playback tab as shown below.
Once we make sure the Playback tab is selected, we locate the area of the ribbon named CaptionOptions from the right. We then select the InsertCaptions command and from the drop-down menu we select the command InsertCaptions. If we hover over the command, we are notified with the following:
Insert WebVTT Closed For Your Media Here
Once we select the InsertCaptions command, the InsertCaptions dialog box appears, where we must locate the VTTfile (as mentioned above). In order to createVTT files just follow the link here. Once we locate the VTTfile and select it, we press the Ok button in order to return to our Presentation and especially the Video.
In the image below we can see our Video in the Slide, and at the bottom right corner of the Video, we have the Subtitles command available. If we just press on the command, we can choose either to turn the SubtitlesOff, or to select the Subtitle that we want, if we have more than one available.
In the image below, we can see the Video that is been played among with the Subtitles.
Also in the next image is an example of the Subtitles been played among with the Video in a PowerPointPresentation.
Once we have inserted Captions on our Video, and we do not need them anymore we must select the Playback tab again, and from the Captions area of the ribbon, we select the InsertCaptions command and from the drop down menu we select the command RemoveAllCaptions as shown in the image below.
