Our captions/subroutines
meet FCC & Federal Section 508 regs




At our booth during the recent Ahead conference, we were often asked how to make videos accessible.

To do that, you send us the video and we add the words to the video (like you see in a foreign film).  

This is called open-captioned. 



1)  We transcribe the audio into a text file. We do not use voice recognition software.

2)  Sync text file to spoken words. Performed by a person, not a computer.

3)  Combine output of step #2 with the video to create an open-captioned mp4 video file.


You get back exactly what is needed, an open-captioned mp4 video file which will play on a PC or Mac.


Send us a URL of a YouTube video or upload a short (<10 mins) video using the upload link above. 

We'll send back the open-captioned mp4 video, free of charge.

We transcribe it, format the text, and then create the CC master (normally BetaSP or DVcam or DVD).

We create an SCC caption file which you combine with your video file. Turnaround is 48 hours, or it is free!!!

Add Subtitles to streaming video on the web!



We create the subtitle file for YouTube, Vimeo, Flash, WMV, and QT which adds subtitles to your video.

You put the video on your website and we create the companion captioning file  the media player.
