CNET Captioned Video

CNET online video with captions
Summary: CNET captions video for Search Engine Optimization.
Detail: CNET.com, a part of CBS Interactive, is the leading online provider of technology and consumer electronic information. Video is an important format for communicating visual information, with tens of thousands of videos being hosted to millions of viewers. To attract more viewers and improve the viewing experience, CNET uses Automatic Sync Technologies to caption their videos. In addition to using the time-coded captions for the video, transcript text is made searchable so search engines like Google can identify content within the video as part of their organic search process. According to Justin Eckhouse, Senior Product Manager, "Once we added the captions, we noticed a dramatic increase in referrals from search engines. The increase in traffic from search engine referrals helped us to justify the expense of captioning". Eckhouse says that CNET does want to support accessibility practices, even though they are not mandated to do so. "Captions benefit more than just the deaf community. Many people who watch video over the web are not in a place where they can easily hear the audio, so having captions displayed aids in their ability to watch and comprehend the content."
