Provide closed captioning for videos, whether published to mobile or OTT
MAZ provides tools to enable your app to be ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) compliant. One of the guidelines requires closed captioning to be available for your video content. Read the below information on how to ensure closed captioning is available for your video content, whether published to mobile or OTT.
The MRSS feed must include the following tag for closed captioning to show:
<media:subtitle> or <media:closedcaption> or <jwplayer:track>
Note : For <jwplayer:track> we will only be looking for kind="subtitles" and kind="captions" instances.
<jwplayer:track file="https://cdn.jwplayer.com/tracks/JWjvPteD" kind="subtitles" label="English"/>
The SRT and VTT file must also be included as a href attribute. For example:
VTT/SRT files are also required to contain the optional sequence values above each timecode.
00:00:09.200 --> 00:00:10.700
00:00:10.700 --> 00:00:13.820
Welcome to this example VTT file.
00:00:13.820 --> 00:00:16.520
Follow this spec
00:00:16.520 --> 00:00:20.920
To be sure that your Closed Captioning displays properly
00:00:26.040 --> 00:00:41.320
Thanks for checking this out
Have a wonderful day.
00:00:00,570 --> 00:00:02,200
00:00:02,200 --> 00:00:03,450
Are you looking to add captions?
00:00:06,850 --> 00:00:09,600
Well then, try adding a SRT to your MRSS feed!
00:00:09,600 --> 00:00:13,343
Use sequence numbers and time codes
00:00:15,960 --> 00:00:18,370
making sure to use proper SRT format.
Once you've created feeds with the correct closed captioning files, reach out to email@example.com in order to activate this toggle in your settings menu within your app.
NOTE: English (EN and GB) is the only language currently supported for closed captioning.
