What are subtitles on a YouTube video?
In the broadcast industry, subtitles are also known as captions or closed captions, which are text-based transcriptions of dialogue and other sounds. Text can be shown instead of sound in digital video to represent the words spoken by actors or speakers; they might not be original recordings with audio.
By using subtitles, people who are hard of hearing (elderly viewers) can enjoy what is happening without needing to use any additional equipment.
Bigger Subtitles for YouTube
Here are four methods to make your subtitles larger and more visible. So let’s get started!
Method 1 for Adding Bigger Subtitles For Your YouTube Videos
If you have a computer, log in to YouTube Settings and go to the video with subtitles that are too small for you to read.
To adjust playback quality, click on the gear icon at the top-right of the screen and select “Playback settings.” Adjust playback quality until it works with your connection speed or takes up more space on your screen if necessary, you can also change the resolution here by clicking around in some menus.
Make sure captions are turned off for all three sub-headings (Captions displayed while playing videos; Captions automatically displayed when language is detected; Captions always displayed on mobile devices).
YouTube.com/captions settings. This method can be a little tricky, so we’ve illustrated it with screenshots for you below!
Sign in to your YouTube account and go to youtube.com/captions (you may need to scroll down the page if there are many other options listed at the top). Click “Settings” next to the search bar where you type video titles or channels. The text should be black instead of white as it does on the rest of the YouTube page.
Next click “Edit Captions Settings” which will take you through three different screens before allowing you to make the size of the subtitles bigger.
Method 3 to bold YouTube subtitles
YouTube Subtitle App by Google. This app is actually free and it’s on the Play Store!
Install the Subtitles for YouTube app from the link below in your mobile browser or favorite app store on your device to use this method- You should then be directed to a page with a green “download now” button on the right-hand side of the screen. Click on it to download and install on your phone.
Open YouTube on your device (in whatever app you normally watch videos) and find the video that has small captions–once you find it, tap “subtitles,” which should be right next to where you type titles or channels.
Here you can select the language for which subtitles will show up, make them bigger or smaller according to your needs and find a list of other languages that might be interesting to watch!
The last way to upload multiple videos on YouTube with bigger subtitles is to use a Google Chrome extension, which should be readily available through your browser’s extensions section if it is not already installed.
This method works like Method # two, but with a few extra advantages, such as the ability to resize them according to the preset preferences you set, or even to download them as a video file, so that you can watch them later on your mobile device or in another browser
The font size of captions can also be changed by going to youtube.com/captions and clicking “Settings” at the top-right–you can then click on the three dots next to “Font Style” in order to select a new one that is more comfortable for you.
Increase the size of YouTube subtitles in mobile YouTube apps for Android and IOS
The YouTube mobile app is available for both Android and IOS. “Open your mobile device’s web browser and go to Youtube.com, then tap on the Edit icon, Second choose the video you want and click on the captions button found next to where you type in titles or channels (or if the video already has captions enabled).”
Tap on “subtitle settings” which should be right next to where you type in titles or channels
Simply tap the “font-size” button found at the top-right corner of your screen. You can then increase font size in one of two ways:
By tapping on the three dots next to “Font Size”, you can choose a size that is comfortable for you.
“Open the YouTube app on your mobile device and click on “Settings”. Tap the “Subtitles & CC” button in order to change the font size.”
There are many ways to make YouTube subtitles bigger, as you can see. In general, captions have been a hot topic for people who understand the importance of providing accessible content. To keep up with this trend, we’ve listed five different methods on how to do just that!
