Hey everyone,

Just a quick update here. We have long heard requests for captions within Wealthy Affiliate video training and you will notice that they are starting to be rolled out throughout the platform. Level 1 of both the core OEC training and Bootcamp training now have captions, and a great deal of the classes also have captions.

Moving forward ALL training will have captions. You can see an example of this the captions here.

According to the National Library of Medicine....

"More than 100 empirical studies document that captioning a video improves comprehension of, attention to, and memory for the video. Captions are particularly beneficial for persons watching videos in their non-native language, for children and adults learning to read, and for persons who are D/deaf or hard of hearing."


We are looking forward to not only our ongoing and regular updates to the training here, but the new and improved environment in which we encourage better and more efficient absorption of the training through captions.

Yipee yahoo. Now, I can tell Deaf people about WA opportunity. And also for people with a hearing loss for those who wear hearing aids or cochlear implant can benefit from reading the closed captioning. Thanks Kyle for your hard work, how long will all of it be completed the full training and bootcamp?

You most certainly can, and these will be integrated into all of the training as time goes on, and all new class replays (and it is being rolled into past classes as well).

There are many training resources within bootcamp that are getting refreshed in the coming month, so as I roll those out these will be integrated.

Awesome. I am so thrilled. Thanks, Kyle.

I figured you would be!

@Kyle - Thank you for making this happen as I was opening up another window for another company I use to create the captioning for me. One less window to use for the trainings but I'll be using the second windows for the non-captioned videos until all your videos are set for captioning. Again thanks Kyle for putting this in place for me.

Just want to be sure I respond to this fantastic announcement. I am just one of many here who will find the addition of captions to video training very helpful. It is an inclusive and progressive step that I'm sure Kyle and Carson are rightly proud of. Thank you!

It's great that we can promote accessibility as a feature of the WA platform but it's even better for those who need or prefer to consume training with captions. I know I prefer a written medium myself and, having been diagnosed with a chronic ear problem ealier this year, I suspect I will be relying on it more and more in the future.

So, whoop for this announcement! WHOOP!

Really glad you liked this updated Russell, it is something that we have implemented on a smaller scale but as time goes on this is going to be something that is within all of the training here at WA...and of course it is optional.

It's a great thing to be focused on though, Kyle, so I applaud it. Obviously it will take time to implement across all the training available at WA but I'm grateful that your doing it.

It will take time, but it will happen with quite a bit of efficiency.

Hi Kyle,

You solved the mystery. When the captions appeared I thought I had done something wrong. I wanted to turn it off. Is it possible to do that?

I like the idea of captions for members who's main language is not English.

Wealthy Affiliate is becoming more helpful and that's great!

Cheers.

Yeah, you can definitely turn them off. Click the CC button in the video, and that will pull up the menu. You are in full control. ;)

For me, this is very helpful.
This particular video was long enough to see the captions actually working as well as having SEO with Jaxxy demonstrated.

It was short enough to share an important feature and how to use it. Also reminded me of the ability to store keywords for future use.
Thanks,
Sami

Very nice, Kyle. Thank You.

Yes, we see this request a lot in the training courses. This is a real big help.

Thanks for taking the time and effort required to make it easier to follow the videos for more people.

:We like the changes you and your team keep rolling out.

Cheers!

No problem at all George, we are happy to do so! :)
