While captioning has traditionally been used for the deaf/hard of hearing, it is also useful for English as a Second Language (ESL) speakers, those with learning disabilities, war veterans, textual learners, people who have trouble concentrating, and many others.
Captioning a video on your personal or business website will not only make your video accessible to a larger audience, but will also add to your searchable text, elevating your likelihood of being found through search engines.
We have a team of transcribers that are trained and experienced in closed captioning for many different mediums, including YouTube captioning and a variety of video files. We follow the Captioning Key created by the Described and Captioned Media Program (DCMP) and have completed Post Production or Offline Captions training through pepnet2. We understand the importance of adhering to captioning guidelines, which includes proper line breaking, timecoding, font, speaker identifiers, and more.
You may have noticed that YouTube has an automatic captioning capability. However, this provides little benefit to viewers, as voice recognition software is not able to accurately transcribe videos, thereby being recognized as inadequate from a user’s perspective. Our team of transcribers manually captions each video request to personally ensure our clients are receiving quality and proper video captioning.
