Hi, how can we help you?

What are closed captions/subtitles/transcripts?

Closed captions/subtitles are a text version of the spoken part of a video. Closed captioning is essential for users that are hearing-impaired, but is also useful for foreign language students. They also improve discovery of your films as our search technology searches captions as well as title/synopses.

Subtitles are generally for non-English videos. We prefer subtitles to be supplied as a separate file, not burnt into the video.
Transcripts are text versions of the videos, and are generally created in a word doc or pdf. If you have transcript that can be provided in a .txt file with accurate time-codes, there is a chance we can convert it to a closed caption file.
