Three Reasons Readable Videos Matter:

1️⃣ Traditional animated videos can be difficult, time-consuming, and expensive to create. Readable videos are simple and efficient to create using free tools.

2️⃣ Producing a voice-over is a complex process that requires experience and skill. Readable videos use words on the screen.

3️⃣ Accessibility matters. Readable videos work for those with hearing impairments. They can also be consumed without speakers or headphones.
