Few tips to make your captions ADA compliant in a snap


  • Enter just 32 characters or less in a line. Adding more characters per line may increase the difficulty of the viewer’s to read.
  • Ensure only one to three lines of text appear on the screen for about 3-6 seconds which is then replaced by the next caption.
  • Verify that captions are available till the end of the video, even at places where no speakers are available.
  • Add time codes to synchronize with the audio.
  • Use both upper and lower case letters.
  • Make your captions accessible to whoever needs them.
  • Display your captions for a duration that is enough to be read.
  • Identify speakers in your captions when more than one person is on screen or when the speaker is not seen on the screen.
  • Make sure that the captions are spelled correctly, inclusive of proper punctuation and grammar.
  • Caption all the words, despite the language or dialect.
  • Include music, sound effects or other descriptions within brackets like [music] or [laughter]

On Windows, a red ADA icon appears below your caption editor, if the caption style you chose for is not ADA compliant.

To comply with ADA, click the ADA dropdown and select Make Compliant.
