Netflix Closed Captioning Services for Your Video Content
Netflix is a streaming service that has grown to become one of the most popular video hosting sites in the world. It gained more popularity during the pandemic when multiplexes around the world were shutdown. With time, it has become a household app with over 200 million subscribers!
It is surely a platform worth hosting your videos on if you want to expand your reach.
As a content creator or media production company, you have to be aware that Netflix is one of the platforms you should host your content on.
One of the main requirements from Netflix for a video to be hosted on the platform is that it should have captions. Netflix is against discrimination, so they aim to make content more accessible to viewers who are hard of hearing or deaf.
What is the Difference Between Closed and Open Captions?
Captions are textual forms of the dialogues that comes up in the audio track of a video. They appear on the screen along with the corresponding audio section. While subtitles are translated versions of the information, captions are in the same language as the original file.
There are two types of captions that you can add to your videos:
Closed captions are preferred by most users as they can be used whenever necessary. For example, a viewer may use closed captions only when they are in a noisy public area, and keep them off at all other times.

Netflix is one such platform that had a goal of making all its media accessible by 2014. It has continued to do so ever since with all the content uploaded on the platform.
Adding captions to the video also has other benefits. Viewers who are not native speakers of the video's language can understand it better with the help of captions. Moreover, the search engine ranking of the media is also higher when captions are added because the search engines can read only text. This helps with indexing and improving the visibility of the videos.
Important Netflix Captioning and Subtitle Requirements
Netflix has a very specific set of requirements for captions and subtitles which ensure that the media follows all the basic accessibility principles.
Some of these requirements include:
Length: Each line cannot exceed 42 characters in length. If it is longer, it must be broken into two lines either near a preposition, conjunction, or punctuation mark.
Speed: The reading speed of the content must be within 20 characters per second for adults and 17 characters per second for children.
Formats: Netflix restricts the accepted formats of subtitles and captions to TTML1 or IMSC1.1 (only for Japanese)
Duration: The duration for a subtitle on Netflix cannot exceed 7 seconds
Position: The captions must be placed either in the top-center of the screen or the bottom-center. Some leeway is provided to avoid interference with text that is already present in the video (such as casting).
Credits: Due credit must be given to the translator towards the end of the video.
