QuickCaption provides video and web streaming captioning to a variety of clients across multiple environments for attendees, professionals, and students to access the spoken word.
The captioned video and/or web streamed event accommodates an often missed large segment of people—the deaf and hard of hearing communities. Approximately 17% of Americans have some level or form of hearing loss. Be sure to provide equal accommodations and access to all viewers for all videos and web streaming!
Benefits of captioning/subtitling videos and web streamed events include the ability to view in noisy environments and quiet environments where volume must be turned down or off completely, the ability to view the spoken word in multiple languages for a global audience, and the ability for the post-event transcript to be used for reposting, reference, data mining, and search engine optimization (SEO). Post-event transcripts are index-able by search engines and thus will appear in search results.
In addition, there is evidence of increased retention of material when it is seen and heard simultaneously, as more neural pathways are involved in the processing of the information.
