Transcripts for podcasting is a hot button topic. But if we want to make sure our content is accessible to every listener — even those with hearing loss — it shouldn’t be. So get off the “transcripts for SEO” kick and make a transcript for the right reason.

Transcripts of podcast episodes are an accessibility feature, not an SEO benefit.

Captioning is added to the audio (and video) elements of your digital content so that people can consume those elements with their eyes instead of (or in some cases in addition to) their ears.
