It’s pretty simple actually. As we scrolled through social sites like Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and Instagram, we noticed we always had the sound off. Because of that we found we would only stop and engage with videos with subtitles.
We realized we weren’t alone. Over 80% of social videos are watched with the sound off. Not only that, there are over 35 million hearing-impaired Americans who can benefit from subtitled videos.
Why doesn’t every video or ad have subtitles? It turns out the answer was pretty obvious: there were no good tools to automate and customize subtitles. So, we set out to build Vidomo: Automated subtitles & captions for your social videos.
You’ve already done the hard part creating awesome content. Vidomo can help you increase your reach, shares, likes, and clicks!
