Captioning

We can provide captioning for TV, DVD and web video like Flash, QuickTime, Window Media and YouTube.

The ClickableCaptions plugin can be used to provide captions and subtitles with Flowplayer, plus support for video hosting platforms such as YouTube, Vimeo, Brightcove and blip.tv.

We offer two options for you to use our service:

  1. You provide us with the transcription – simply upload your media and the transcription (in the transcript format we specify) and we’ll send back the completed caption file/s.
  2. You upload your audio and we’ll provide the transcription and the captioning to you in 72 hours or less.

We can provide captioning in all these formats:
