  • Add chapters to media, or highlight particular sections to make it easier to highlight specific time in media.
  • Caption foreign language videos, to help viewers that are learning the language and need help with interpreting what is being said. Captions can be toggled on or off, in case a viewer doesn’t want to see them.
  • Make videos accessible to those who are hearing-impaired.
  • Focus on the lyrical content of the song.
