Make your video content available to a larger audience on LinkedIn with closed captions. If you want to reach deaf/hearing-impaired viewers, captions help these groups understand your videos. Captions are also useful on social media, where 85% of people report watching videos without sound. Social media users are far more likely to watch an entire video when captions are available.
