All transcription is produced by stenographic translation and never by voice recognition software. All of QuickCaption’s staff is within the United States and at no time are files outsourced out of the United States. QuickCaption’s staff are highly trained stenographic writers and as such, possess a strong command of the English language. This allows for the most accurate transcription, including linguistic and cultural nuances, highly technical content, and correct punctuation of poorly spoken English.
When captioning media, QuickCaption considers the audience and is able to produce a final product that is not only ADA compliant, but helpful to deaf and HoH communities. Using industry standards and proven developments, QuickCaption selects font size and color, and captioning speed that is comfortable for readability and continued use. QuickCaption also provides language translation services for media captioning.
QuickCaption guarantees its quoted turnaround time for each and every project, from eight hours to four weeks, depending on the details of the project.
