One in 120 million. That’s the odds of your video being found on YouTube, let alone the entire Internet. So how do you win this video lottery?
Transcripts, in a word. Interactive Transcripts in two, if you want users to like them as much as search engines do.
Dotsub provides transcripts, and more importantly, Interactive Transcripts which are click-able by viewers and jump to the corresponding place in the video. Added into web pages around the video player, Interactive Transcripts can be laid out as a pull-down in the webpage, to become indexable by all major search engines.
As above, our API also provides search functionality for the Interactive Transcript, and highlighting for each phrase as it’s being said. Not exactly Karaoke style, but you can see how helpful both features would be.
When Dotsub’s 508-compliant closed captions are used as Interactive Transcripts, every on-screen graphic and off-screen sound (like applause) are also documented, so they also become discoverable with standard internet search engines.
