Video Closed Captioning Services

Modern videos must have captions to promote content accessibility and guarantee that anyone can view and comprehend them. Unlike open captions, which you cannot turn off, closed captions allow users to toggle them on and off freely. Despite their high compatibility to display captions on pretty much any device out there, open captions can be difficult to embed into videos. On the other hand, video closed captioning is the best option if you want your audience to have total control over how they view the content.

Here at GoTranscript, we can assist you in implementing video closed captioning to your content. Our company has plenty of experience in ensuring media content complies with accessibility laws with our top-notch video closed captioning services.

About Closed Captions

Closed captions are time-coded transcripts of the conversation between the characters on the screen. Closed captioning (CC) is the process of transcribing text and matching it to the visible images on a video screen. Movies, TV shows, video games, and online videos can all use captions to improve the reach of their content. If you're a content creator, it works similarly to when you create subtitles for a YouTube video.

The main idea here is always to bolster the accessibility of your material. When implementing captions into your content, there's a series of aspects you should consider.

Time-saving alternative

Depending on your company's size, some can employ in-house teams to transcribe video content. It may take longer than outsourcing, but if cost-cutting is your top priority, it is a viable option. However, if you value your time, opt for professional video closed captioning services like ours. Our professionals can masterfully add captions to any video in no time.

Open captions Vs. Closed captions

Enabling or disabling closed captions allows viewers to consume content their way. In contrast, open captions are a feature that is added to the media or video file and cannot be disabled. When choosing between closed captioning and open captioning, consider what kind of viewing experience you want to offer your audience. In most cases, it should be cc because it provides more choice and control.

Video subtitles or captions

What is video captioning, and how are they different from subtitles? Although these two sound similar, closed captions and subtitles are different. While subtitles are mostly translations, captions are an exact transcription of the spoken word. Both of them get displayed as text at the bottom of your display. Captions also include descriptions of sounds on the screen, which is something subtitles don't do.

ADA accessibility requirements

According to ADA accessibility requirements, public entities like governments must use captions in their video content. Requirements for private entities focus solely on uses in "places of public accommodation." This approach ensures that people with disabilities no longer have trouble accessing this content.

Why Should You Use Captions in Your Videos?

Autism spectrum disorders can make it difficult for some individuals to follow conversations. Hence, a video with closed caption makes the dialog easier to understand for autistic people. Children who watch educational training programs with closed captions will also learn to read and understand more quickly. They learn the printed versions of the words more quickly when matching the verbal communication they hear to the words they see on the screen.

Increased accessibility

Deaf and hard-of-hearing people enjoy video just as much as other people. Images and texts can fill in the gaps for those that are hard of hearing to make content more understandable.

Better outreach

Closed captions for videos are a fantastic choice if you want to appeal to a worldwide audience. You can translate your time-coded cc to closed caption subtitles in specific languages to present it to people with different languages.

Improved SEO

Do you have a YouTube or Vimeo channel? If so, closed video captions can help search engines find and index your content more efficiently. Videos with closed captions consistently appear higher in search results. Simply put, Google doesn't really take into account any videos you post based on audio unless you include relevant text. Because of this, YouTube enables channel managers to add descriptions for each video. Here you can put your captions in a transcript format to rank higher and gain more views.

Templates for inspiration

There are several reasons why you would require a video script once you've finished making a video project. Firstly, you can review the script to see where more unambiguous language might increase the number of views for upcoming videos. Content creators who post educational or tutorial videos on social media follow a similar content pattern frequently. If this sounds familiar, you should also use Facebook video captioning to generate cc, which can serve as a template for your future Facebook videos.

You can also reuse these as Instagram closed captions if you wish to post parts of the same content. Your scriptwriters can use the transcript as a benchmark and make videos for other platforms too. Also, you can publish your closed captions as a video transcript in your blog article. Despite the popularity of video content, some of your audience members might still favor reading a blog. Some people may want to do both. Closed captions turned transcripts can address everyone's needs.

Frequently Asked Questions

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.

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.

All of our captioners 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.
