  • Auto-generated YouTube captions have improved significantly in recent years, and the service is free. However, these video captions are still not 100 percent accurate. The process to log into your YouTube account and access the video settings makes it simple to update the captions for clarity and accuracy. 

    In this workshop, you will learn the skills necessary to add and update closed captions to videos on YouTube.

    Schedule a one-on-one appointment for training on the training and development homepage.
