Video Captioning Services

Create accessible video content that everyone can enjoy.

Your content is meant to be shared and you want it to reach as many people as possible regardless of ability. Our closed captioning services add an extra layer of inclusivity to your videos and broadcasts.

ScribeWire, formerly known as Closed Caption Services, offers comprehensive closed captioning solutions for both live and post-production captioning. Also known as offline captioning, post-production captioning is the process of adding captions to films or other episodic programs and videos before they’re aired, streamed or uploaded, ensuring that every viewer has equal access to the dialogue. Viewers can toggle the closed captions on or off with whatever device you are using.

ScribeWire's closed captioning services elevate this process, ensuring your content is not only accessible but also resonates with every member of your audience. Tailored for post-production companies, filmmakers, and broadcasters, our services meticulously capture every dialogue, sound, and musical cue, thereby enriching the media consumption experience.

With ScribeWire, you're choosing a partner committed to excellence and inclusivity. Our closed captioning services are designed to ensure that your content is not just seen but felt and understood, regardless of where your audience is or what language they speak.

Make Your Video Content Compliant

For over 30 years, ScribeWire has stood at the forefront of this evolving field and helped to pioneer it in Canada. We adhere to the stringent standards set by the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC), Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA), and the Accessible Canada Act (ACA) in Canada, as well as Federal Communications Commission (FCC) regulations in the United States and educate broadcasters on what it takes to comply with them. 

In compliance with Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG), specifically WCAG 2.1 Section 1.2.2, we ensure that all pre-recorded audio content in synchronized media is captioned. This commitment to accessibility across all channels is crucial, considering the extensive consumption of video content on mobile devices and social media, often with captions on.

Our approach at ScribeWire goes beyond mere compliance. We focus on the nuances of each program, ensuring that the essence of every dialogue and sound is captured, and that placement is carefully chosen, thereby enhancing the overall media consumption experience.

By choosing ScribeWire, you're not just meeting regulatory standards; you're also enhancing viewer engagement and making your content truly inclusive. Our proactive approach ensures that our closed captioning services remain compliant, accurate, and in sync with end-user community preferences and global standards.

Cutting-Edge Tech Meets Human Expertise

At ScribeWire, we strike a balance between cutting-edge technology and human expertise. Our proprietary AI-powered technologies shorten turnaround times and increase efficiency, while our experienced experts meticulously review and refine each caption. This synergy allows us to not only meet but consistently achieve a 100% accuracy standard.

When it comes to adding closed captioning, there is often more than meets the eye. It is the role of our captioners to create a file that accurately represents the content and timing, ensuring that each caption perfectly aligns with the corresponding dialogue or sound.

Our process is dynamic and continuously evolving. We leverage feedback and insights to constantly refine our methodologies, ensuring that every caption and audio description we deliver enhances the viewer's experience. We are committed to elevating the quality of your video content and ensuring that every word is perfectly captured and conveyed.

Closed Captioning Your Content

In a digital landscape where videos account for more than 82% of all internet traffic and are increasingly consumed on mobile devices - with 57% to 75% of global video played on mobiles - captions are not merely an added feature but a necessity. 

Captioning videos is essential, especially considering that a significant number of videos on platforms like Instagram, TikTok, and Facebook are watched without sound, and 80% of people are more likely to watch a video to completion if captions are available.

Closed captioning makes videos and other forms of media accessible to a wider audience. It offers an even more immersive experience by adding audio descriptions like sound effects or background music as well as dialogue, improving comprehension for anyone who is D/deaf, hard of hearing, or who can’t hear environmental sounds.

More Than Just Closed Captioning Services

Our services extend beyond mere captioning. We have developed custom workflows that can be tailored to your specific needs. This includes our model for fixing files for repeat programs in accordance with CRTC guidelines, ensuring that your content remains consistent and compliant over time. 

ScribeWire also has the capability to directly embed captions into various video formats, including Sony MXF, offering a seamless integration that meets the technical demands of today's diverse media landscape.

Integrate Seamlessly with Other Media Accessibility Services

ScribeWire's closed captioning service is great as a standalone solution, but it can also easily be integrated with other services like translation, transcription, and more to create rich, engaging events that are accessible to all.
