Captions

A transcript with a minimum of 98% accuracy is aligned (time coded) and exported into a caption file (SRT, VTT, TTML, SAMI). The optional service of creating an Open Caption Video permanently burns the captions into each frame of the video file ensuring maximum accessibility regardless of media player.

Captioning Process

  • STEP 1: Human Transcription – A quality closed captioning file starts with a highly accurate transcript created by a professional, U.S.-based transcriber.
  • STEP 2: Human Alignment – Combining technology with the human touch, our specially trained aligners know how to create the perfect captions.

  • STEP 3: Human Quality Review – A quality review of the transcript and captions with a fresh set of human eyes makes for an excellent final result.

FAQ

What’s the difference between open and closed captions and which do I need? 2018-06-13T08:27:10+00:00

Closed captions allow the viewer to turn the captioning on and off. Closed captions can be video-player specific,and may require multiple captioning file formats. Open captions are typically embedded below the video frame and are always seen by the viewer. Open captions are not video-player specific.

Do I need to upload a captioning file to my video player, or is the captioning part of the final captioned video? 2018-06-13T10:21:48+00:00

If a captioning file is provided, it will need to be manually uploaded to a video player, which takes additional time and requires some technical proficiency. Videos with embedded captioning are immediately available for professor and student use.

What factors influence post-production captioning per- minute pricing? 2018-06-13T10:23:06+00:00

Accuracy + Time = Cost. Accuracy rate (the higher the percentage, the higher the cost) and turnaround time (the shorter the turnaround time, the higher the cost). FYI –captioning your videos before the semester begins will help to save time and reduce costs.

What’s the turnaround time to caption a video? 2018-06-15T19:17:44+00:00

Our project turnaround times are dependent on your project needs. Our standard turnaround is three business days, but we also offer rush service of 24 hours or less.

What’s the ideal accuracy rate required to meet the accessibility needs of my students? 2018-06-13T10:22:37+00:00

98% accuracy is usually considered to be the minimum target rate for realtime captioning.Increasing the accuracy level to 99% or higher usually requires additional editing and will increase your cost.
