When you want to find audio content online, searches can be tricky to structure because it is hard to search audio content for keywords.

However, online video (and audio) content increasingly includes captions, which often times can be searched.

This video* explains how to use the video website Hulu.com to search for specific words or phrases in videos. The words/phrase might be in the title of the movie/show/episode or in the dialogue.

Hulu Captions Search allows you to 
  • find specific words or ideas in videos, rich content perfect for today's learners. 
  • learn about this is a powerful tool 
  • incorporate new, engaging content into classrooms, presentations, and more.  
When before you had to know what you were looking for to be able to find a video that used a certain word, phrase, or topic, now Hulu Captions Search makes finding this content manageable.
