Cincopa’s Closed Caption Editor is a powerful feature that allows users to:
- Modify, edit and publish uploaded captions.
- Review, edit and publish machine-generated captions, produced using Cincopa’s AI-powered “Automatic Closed Captions”.
Closed Captions – accessibility & SEO benefits
Captioned videos increase SEO traffic by helping search engines interpret the content within the video, in addition to the title and description (injected automatically using JSON-LD).
Cincopa’s Automatic Video SEO takes the video’s transcription or captions and automatically optimizes them for search engine indexing, resulting in a hands-free SEO boost.
Web regulations and ADA compliance are mandatory for companies utilizing online videos for customer-facing content, as well as internal organizational uses, such as training and educational videos.
Cincopa’s array of features and solutions helps your business comply with regulations, and to do so without spending valuable time and resources.
