Have a question?

Why should I incorporate closed captioning or transcripts into my livestream?

These accessibility features enable viewers to enjoy your content without disturbance in noisy environments or during livestreams with high background noise. Moreover, they enhance the viewing experience for individuals who are Deaf or Hard of Hearing and also benefit those with learning disabilities, attention deficit disorder, or autism, ensuring your content is inclusive and accessible to a wider audience.

What exactly is live closed captioning?

Live closed captioning involves the real-time creation of synchronized on-screen text during a live event, video conference, or broadcast. This service is provided by our AV company to ensure accessibility for viewers with hearing impairments, making content inclusive and compliant with accessibility standards.

When considering services, which task is generally considered less complex: transcription or captioning?

Transcription is generally considered an easier task compared to captioning. Transcription involves converting spoken content into text, while captioning requires synchronizing text with video, considering timing and formatting guidelines to ensure accessibility for viewers with hearing impairments.

When considering live captioning and transcription services, is it preferable to choose a transcriptionist or a captioner?

The choice between a transcriptionist and a captioner depends on your specific needs. A transcriptionist excels at providing accurate text representations of spoken content, while a captioner specializes in creating synchronized on-screen text for videos, ensuring accessibility for viewers with hearing impairments. The selection should align with your content and accessibility goals.

Are closed captioning and transcripts identical?

No, closed captioning and transcripts differ. Closed captioning displays text during a video, while a transcript is a textual representation of spoken content, typically provided separately.
