Closed Captioning Content Best Practices
Dec 03, 2020
Hello everyone, I have a design best practices question. In our learning template we have a green wrapper (from the player settings). We also used to add a same green-color block on the bottom. We did this so that the closed captioning would have a home on top of this green block. All slide content would be designed above this green block.
Our designers have asked if they could reclaim that space covered by the green block on the bottom in order to have more room to design, a larger canvas, if you will.
My question is, as a best practice, is it ok for the closed captioning text to float over actual slide content? In this case in the bottom eighth of the slide. Or is it a better practice to place a solid color at the bottom so that the closed captions do not cover slide content.
Let me know your thoughts as designers.
