Forcing Open-Captioning on YouTube

This was a little tip shared with my by Joanna McClellan that allows you the creator to force captions to be displayed on your content. This is a great tip if YouTube videos are part of your school-based digital signage solution or pushing out school-wide videos where you want to ensure that captions are displayed.

On your YouTube video, add yt:cc=on to the tags under the Basic Info tab of your video as seen below. You can see this tag in action on my original vision video for this #CreateAccessibility project.
