CLOSED CAPTIONING SERVICES

If you're considering using closed captioning services to enhance your video content, don't wait another minute.

Video captioning of TV programs is the law in many countries, such as the U.S. While those laws don't always extend to website content, video games, or DVDs, it makes sense to build your reputation as a provider of accessible content.

In 2015, there were 119 million people with hearing loss in Europe. Considering the total European population that year was 738 million, you're losing many clients by not using video captioning services.

Why subtitles aren't enough for people with hearing impairments

Subtitles are great for viewers who speak a different language than the one spoken in your video.

With subtitles, your video content can reach a far greater number of people around the world. Subtitles are also useful for people who speak the same language with a different and very strong accent -for example, a British person watching an Australian film.

But subtitles don't provide hearing-impaired viewers with the full sound experience. Why? Because subtitles leave out ambient sounds that are critical to conveying a message.

An obvious example of a crucial ambient sound would be door squeaking in a horror movie. You know something scary is coming, but the person who can't hear doesn't have any idea what's going on.

When watching other types of videos, you probably don't think about the ambient sounds in them. But these sounds give important clues to stories.

Think about watching a newscast by a war correspondent. It doesn't have the same impact without the sound of bombs or gunfire in the background.

In the same vein, a movie showing an interior of an apartment may have a lot of traffic noises and shouting outside. These sounds indicate that the apartment is in a metropolitan area.

Captioning shows not only dialogue and narration to the viewer, but also song lyrics and these sounds that make every video more meaningful.

Closed captioning (CC) is matching transcribed text to the moving visual images on a screen.
Also known as video closed captioning and video captioning, CC is perfect for movies, TV programs, video games, or YouTube videos.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What are Captions?
Captioning is the process of converting the audio content of a broadcast, film, video, live event, or other production into text and displaying the text on a screen or monitor. Captioning enables those who are hearing-impaired to benefit fully from media materials.
What is the difference between Subtitles and Captions?
Captions are meant for hearing-impaired individuals who can view video images but can't hear the soundtrack. Captions communicate the video's spoken content, song lyrics, and "atmospherics," or sound effects that are part of the story.
Subtitles are intended for viewers who can hear the audio but can't understand the language spoken. Subtitles are trickier because they translate the nuances of a spoken and written language into the viewer's language.
How do you keep my information secure?
All of our translators/transcribers sign a Confidentiality Agreement. We respect our clients' privacy; therefore, we give clients the option to personally remove completed transcriptions from our database. The data is completely removed from the computers of our translators/transcribers as well.
How do you ensure quality?
We at GoTranscript completely understand the importance of accuracy in captions. That's why we always aim for 99% accuracy.
We start by hiring only the best. We then employ a system of reviews and checks to ensure quality and accuracy. Our staff have no less than 5 years of transcribing experience, so you can be sure your audio files are transcribed with great care and attention to detail.
What's the price per minute?
Unlike your typical captioning agency, GoTranscript provides clear, per-minute pricing with no add-on charges or minimums. Captioning rates start at $1.04 per minute.
