Introducing the Blubrry Web Player

Enhance Your Podcast Accessibility with Closed Captioning and Transcripts

In an increasingly digital world, it’s essential to make your content accessible to as many people as possible. That’s why we’re excited to introduce the Blubrry Web Player, a game-changer in the podcasting industry. Our innovative player supports closed captioning and provides seamless integration with transcripts, making your podcast more accessible to a wider audience.

If you use episode-level images, those will appear in your player, similar to how they worked with the standard player below.

You should populate your destinations in the blurry dashboard to ensure that your podcast player subscribe options have to follow/subscribe destination.

The Importance of Closed Captioning and Transcripts

  1. Reach a larger audience: By including closed captions and transcripts, you’re opening the doors to the deaf and hard-of-hearing community, allowing them to engage with your content. According to the World Health Organization, over 5% of the world’s population has disabling hearing loss, which means you could be missing out on a significant number of potential listeners without these features.
  2. Improve content comprehension: Closed captions and transcripts can help all listeners better understand your podcast, particularly those whose first language may not be English. By providing a text version of your audio content, you’re supporting their comprehension and increasing their likelihood of becoming loyal listeners.
  3. Boost SEO: Search engines cannot crawl audio content but can crawl text. By providing transcripts, you’re giving search engines more content to index, which can help improve your podcast’s search engine ranking and increase its visibility.
  4. Cater to diverse listening situations: Some people might prefer reading a transcript over listening to an episode, mainly when they can’t use audio, such as during work or in a noisy environment. By offering transcripts, you’re catering to these listeners and providing them an alternative way to consume your content.
