Daily Transcription is a full-service closed captioning company offering high-quality closed captioning services at affordable rates.
Closed captioning is a system originally designed to help the hearing-impaired understand television shows and movies, but the technology is also used to enhance your video content. Prerecorded or offline closed captioning is perfect for movies, television shows, games, and other media without a live element. In the United States, the Federal Communication Commission (FCC) mandates closed captioning for broadcast.
Why Use Closed Captioning Services?
Closed Captioning allows for:
Improved Indexing and Searching: Powerful new search engines are now making archived videos searchable utilizing the program’s captioning. Use closed captions or transcripts as metadata to make your video text-searchable, and to make web-embedded video search engine friendly. These features work best when captions are accurate.
Increased Viewer Flexibility: Let your users get the full benefit of your message, anywhere. With the increasing popularity of mobile devices, viewers may be in environments where access to audio is limited or impaired. Closed captioning allows them to view and appreciate the value of your content whether they are in the library, at a concert, or on a noisy bus.
Improved Comprehension: Many people are visual learners and get a greater benefit from being about to read the dialogue in addition to listening. Closed captioning improves comprehension and retention of media content for all users.
Improved Accessibility for ESL Viewers: There are more viewers with English as a second language than there are with English as a first language & closed captioning helps your message reach larger audiences.
Expert Closed Caption Writers
Our caption writers have deep industry knowledge and guarantee 100% accurate captions, perfectly placed in your video and make your videos stand out.
Send us your file in nearly any format and we can import it into our digital captioning system. We are also capable of handling your encoding and authoring. If someone else is managing the authoring process, we’ll create all the necessary files (caption/subtitle and audio description) complete with time stamps and send them back to you.
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.
We provide the fastest turnarounds and highest quality in the industry. We can deliver most projects on a same day turnaround. If you need your closed captioning done fast and done right, don’t wait.
