Subtitling vs. Captioning
The is quite a bit of confusion when it comes to the difference between subtitling and captioning. Subtitling means translating a medium such as a movie, TV show, employee training video, or other visual media into another language. It provides viewers a text alternative for the spoken words of characters, narrators and other vocal actors.
Open and Closed Captioning (CCs) is most commonly used for live broadcasts, sporting events, and live TV. It is considered supplemental for dialogue and other relevant parts of the script such as background noises or other key sounds that aid a viewer's understanding of the video.
Open captioning refers to text that cannot be turned off, whereas, users have the ability to turn Closed Captioning (CCs) on or off.
