Question about CC and recording Apple videos

I make a lot of educational videos on my iPhone and Macbook, and I want them to be as accessible as possible to Deaf and HOH people. I've spent two hours trying to figure out how to add closed captioning to my videos automatically, but the only resources I can find at Apple are articles on how to turn on CC for viewing, which is not what I want, rather than recording. I also talked to Apple tech support: same problem. Is this because the tech (whatever its obvious shortcomings) has advanced to the point where Deaf and HOH watchers have this functionality on their devices already? Or is it something I need to add to each video myself--and if the latter, how? Thanks for your patience with my lack of knowledge.
