Editing Captioning

Best Practices

  • Align text left
  • Use Sans Serif fonts (Arial, Helvetica, or Verdana)
  • 22 pt font
  • No more than 32 characters per line
  • Font color and background must pass AA Color Contrast Ratio (large text=14pt and larger)
  • Do not use color as the only way to convey meaning

WCAG2 Captioning Standards

Examples of Failures:

  • Text alternatives that are not actually alternatives (i.e. provided text is not descriptive)
  • Text alternatives that are inaccurate or incomplete
  • Captions omitting dialogue or important sound effects
  • Captions do not present all the information
  • Synchronized media provided as alternative to text is not labeled as such
