Subtitles and Accessibility

Currently, Instagram is among the most used social networks in the world. Its design, functions and differentials make it highly sought after by those who love to be connected with the world.

From app updates, in addition to videos posted directly in stories, as one of the existing communication tools on the platform, there are also videos that are posted in Feed, such as Reels, for example.

Users of the social network are adopting subtitles in their videos. They are very useful for a person who is watching the video but for some reason cannot hear the audio, such as being in an environment that requires silence.

That person can still understand the video because of the subtitles.


Naturally, this makes publications more attractive and another point even more important is how much captions make Instagram a more accessible environment for people who are deaf or hard of hearing.

According to the IBGE (our country's Institute of Geography Statistics), 5% of the Brazilian population are deaf people. This equates to more than 10 million people and nearly 3 million of these citizens are profoundly deaf.

The mission of increasing engagement is important, but promoting inclusion is even more important, because in addition to being necessary, it is also a differentiator. It is of great importance to produce content that serves these people and videos are a good way to communicate with all types of audiences.
