Video Tutorials Poll

Hey knotties! I was thinking of doing free Youtube tutorials for some of my crochet patterns eventually.

So when you guys find a free tutorial of a pattern on Youtube – do you prefer voice-over of the pattern or strictly subtitles with music in the background? I personally prefer subtitles with music only but curious what others prefer!

  • Voice-Over
  • Subtitles Only

Thank you! :smiling_face:

I like the subtitles mainly because YouTube doesn’t always get it right on the closed captions and when I crochet with my kids home it’s hard to hear. Also if you have any fans who are Deaf or hard of hearing it helps them out a lot too. :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:

I’m happy you asked this question? I normally do both and never knew which was better

I personally like both! Sometimes I watch tutorials but I can’t focus on what they’re saying, so I enjoy just being able to read. But on the other hand, it might be hard for some to focus on what you’re crocheting and also trying to read subtitles. So I think having both is great, I can’t choose just one haha

I was also thinking both! I can definitely add the subtitles on my own since YT doesn’t always get it right. Also people can just mute me if they don’t want to hear my voice :rofl:

I think I might test out recording today and we shall see how that goes!

I also prefer both! :blush: I do have hearing issues though, so I like to have subtitles just in case.

I’m okay with voice overs, but if it’s too much work for you subtitles are completely fine :wink: sometimes YouTube’s subtitles are wrong so that might be nice.

There are some times I want subtitles only and some times I want voice-overs, so I guess I fall in the middle? it’s not dependant on the pattern, but I like having the option, myself.
