How To Turn On Captions When Watching A Video

As of now, we cannot put captions on Facebook videos that are live on our end, but you can turn on auto-generated captions in your own settings that will automatically appear on Facebook videos. 

These won’t be perfect word-for-word captions, but hopefully, it helps! 
Turning on Captions on Facebook on your computer:
  1. When you're logged in to your personal Facebook, go to the top right corner and click the dropdown. 
  2. You should see a tab that says "Settings & Privacy". Click that.
  3. Click on "Settings".
  4. On the left side, there will be a menu. Scroll all the way down, and click on "Videos".
  5. There should be an option to "Always show Captions". Set that to "On".

This should allow captions to show for all videos you watch on Facebook.


As an alternative, you can also watch these events over on YouTube at We post all our Craft-In videos from Facebook onto our YouTube channel where captions are provided. So whether or not you're able to participate live, you can always watch the replay on YouTube with captions.
