Closed captioning is the process of adding text to to video files allowing the user to read along with the audio. This is usually employed to assist hearing impaired viewers, but also has other applications. Closed captioning is an important part of delivering online video and Bitmovin’s API is fully capable of managing your CC needs. Contact us for more information.
