While understanding the features available is half the process in deciding what video tools to use, determining your hosting is the other half. Hosting refers to where the video file lives and is accessible to your intended audience.

A transcript is simply a text version of words spoken in a video that does not necessarily synchronize with video content. Captioning converts all audio content in the video (words spoken, sounds, background noises, singing, etc.) into text that is arranged to display synchronously with video content. Captioning is required for accessibility for viewers who are deaf or those experiencing hearing loss.
Some software has captioning built-in, but it's pretty rare. However, hosting locations are getting better about making it part of their upload process or after upload.
