Common question: How do you get captions on Facebook videos? Here’s how.

Facebook will actually generate captions for you, and it does a pretty good job.

Edit the video, click Subtitles & Captions and then click Generate.

You can read through the captions that Facebook creates for you and clean them up a bit. Take out any “ums” and mumbles, add punctuation, and make any other changes you want.

You can also upload a cover image, or choose one of the suggested covers.

And you’re done! It usually takes me less than 30 minutes to create captions for a 5-minute (or less) video.
