Everything You Need to Know About HTML5 Video Captioning

With HTML5, video captioning is a whole lot easier.HTML is the markup language used to render almost every page on the web. HTML5 is the latest version, and it’s replete with incredibly useful features, including a universal video standard that lets developers add video to a web page without using any third party plugins. The new standard also makes it much easier to publish accessible video with closed captioning.

How HTML5 Video Captioning Works

HTML5 is a major step forward for standardizing video across web browsers and devices and thus simplifying closed captioning. The idea is that web video will be based on an open, universal standard that works everywhere.

HTML5 natively supports video without the need for third-party plugins. A video can be added to a web page using the video element, which makes it almost as simple as adding an image.

The track element can be used to display closed captions, subtitles, audio descriptions, chapter markers, or other timed-text data.
