Hi, how can we help you?

Why do I need to supply captions?

Many institutions worldwide are not accepting streamed video without captions. They have strict disability mandates they are obliged to meet and therefore need videos to be accessible for all.
Captions allow videos to be enjoyed by the hearing-impaired. Our interactive caption tool also allows videos to more easily enjoyed by the visually-impaired as the captions interact with the screen-reader technology.
Captions also mean your films can be viewed by foreign language students, or users whose first language is not English.
Finally, captions improve discovery of your films. Our search technology uses the captions to search for key words, as well as the title and synopses. Your films are more closely matched to other relevant films, meaning they are more likely to be found by those users that are seeking them, or searching for topics that your film addresses.
