Frequent Questions

Can I create videos from the Captioned website?

No. To record and publish episodes you need to download the app on your iPhone.

Do you have an Android app?

Currently no, but we’ll keep you posted.

How do I set up my profile?

We recommend branding your profile as your name or online alias. Our series feature allows you to brand series or “shows” within Captioned so you do not need to name your profile after your show. This makes it easier for you to have multiple series under your name.

How do I find people to follow?

Connect your Facebook and Twitter accounts to see who you already know that is on Captioned. When signing up you will be prompted to connect these, but in case you didn’t, you can connect them at any time by clicking on the search icon on the navigation bar at the bottom of the app and you will be prompted to connect your accounts from there. Also check out the featured episodes on the home screen to find great creators.

How do I change my display name/avatar?

From your app home screen, click the person icon in the navbar, then select "edit profile" from the list of options.

I made an episode with another person, how do I add them as an author?

After recording and editing your episode, there will be a field to add additional authors who are existing Captioned users. Click on the circle next to your own avatar that has a plus sign on it, search for the author’s name, and add them as an author.

How do I delete my account?

From your app home screen, click the person icon in the navbar, then select "edit profile" from the list of options. There is a red button that says "delete account" at the bottom of the "edit profile" screen.

How does the editor work?

The Captioned editor was created to make creating high quality video really easy, quick, and fun. After you record, our editor chops your recording into small chunks based on pauses and umms. You can easily tap off any chunks you don’t want in your final recording.
