Closed Captioning is a necessity by law for video broadcasters, in order to make video content accessible to the deaf and the blind community. Intelliscript provides cost effective offline captioning services, with quick turn-around times. For online video producers, educational videos or online media, closed captions come in handy because of the potential of large number of viewers. More importantly for promotional and advertising videos that carry an important message, skipping even small audio portions can significantly impact viewer’s comprehension of the videos. At Intelliscript, we give a lot of importance to the deaf community, and so we write subtitles that enhances the viewing experience for those who may not have access to sound.
We not only preach but practice confidentiality and so our preferred method of file delivery is via our secure FTP. However, we are accommodative and flexible to the needs of our customers and can accept data transfer through tools such as YouSendIt, WeTransfer, Dropbox or G-Drive.
Many broadcasters or video producers have their own specifications for closed captioning, but where a service provider has not provided guidelines or a template, Intelliscript’s standard templates can be used. Upon receipt of your video file, our transcription team will get to work, adding accurate timestamps to the video. Our experienced editors will also proofread the script to ensure accurate use of punctuation, spelling, and grammar. Following this, closed caption style and placement will be formatted, and the finished captions embedded in the video before being sent back.
Subtitling is defined as the process of adding verbatim text to any audio-visual medium (film, television, promotional & corporate videos) to convey the message that is being spoken.
