LinkedIn has a built-in field for alt-text. Just click on the link and add your description (you are limited to 120 characters).
LinkedIn does not support closed captioning within the platform. If you would like to share a video, you can either:
- Upload a video with open captions, or
- Link to a video hosted on Youtube instead
Linking to the YouTube video is faster, but you might see a decrease in the engagement with the post (videos posted natively to a platform tend to do better than videos fed from external sites or platforms).
If you questions about your social media content and whether it’s accessible, the social media team at UF Health is here to help! Send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org, or reach out to us directly.
