MyMedia: Closed Captioned Audio


MyMedia closed captions are metadata that can be added for each saved audio media as a video type.  Closed captions are subtitles that can be displayed with the media player.  Closed captions are created as plain text files that are uploaded and saved with the saved media.  MyMedia supports the ability to search subtitles and captions as a metadata field.
