“WebCaptioning.com is the perfect addition to our toolbox when it comes to captioning video. We work with a multiple language webinar platform that has integrated Streamtext.Net so we can caption their live events. WebCaptioning.com not only lets us create error-free captioning for their recorded events, it makes it easy to correct errors from our realtime captioning and “repurpose” those files into flawless captioning for the archive!”

The WebCaptioning platform provides text alignment with audio and video files, exports multiple captioning file formats, and applies captioning rules to the exported files, thereby improving caption quality and saving hours of editing time.
