Closed Captioning Styles
Daily Transcription offers closed captioning services at competitive rates. Regardless of caption style, our closed captions are accurately transcribed, carefully timed, free of typos, and will never cover your onscreen graphics.
Roll-Up, Scroll-Up or Scrolling Closed Captions
The words appear from left to right, up to one line at a time. When a line is filled, the whole line scrolls up to make way for a new line, and the line on top is erased. The captions usually appear at the bottom of the screen, but can actually be placed anywhere to avoid covering graphics or action.
Pop-On, Pop-Up or Block Closed Captions:
A caption appears anywhere on the screen as a whole, followed by another caption or no captions. This method is used for most pre-taped television and film programming.
Paint-On Closed Captions:
The caption, whether a single word or a line, appears on the screen letter-by-letter from left to right, but ends up as a stationary block like pop-on captions. This format is rarely used today.
