When Always Show Captions is turned on, captions automatically appear wherever they’re available. You can check your own settings by going to the dropdown arrow in the top right corner of your Facebook feed. Then click Settings & Privacy, then Settings again. … You’re only adjusting your personal Facebook settings.
Facebook offers a free video captioning on all English-language Facebook pages in the US. Because Facebook videos auto-play on mute, closed captions are instrumental in capturing viewers’ attention while scrolling down their news feed.
Auto-generated captions are created automatically when you upload a video. By default, auto-generated captions are turned on for all of your video content.
After you click “Edit Video,” you’ll see several tabs. Click on the one that says “Captions.” Here you’ll have the option to upload an SRT File (which we’ll get to later). But if you want to automatically generate captions, click the Generate button.
To get started with this feature all you need to do is:
- Go to one of your videos and at the top right, select the “Edit Post” option. …
- Next, click on the Captions tab and select ‘Generate’ to automatically create captions for your video.
