121 Captions is owned and run by deaf and hearing-impaired people who know first-hand the ease of access, and benefits to business, that proper captioning provides.
The business grew from the need to have easier access to live captioning. Founder and director, Tina Lannin discovered how hard it was to get good communication support while at university and during her career. She felt strongly that the time and money captioners incurred travelling to support her could be better spent. Instead she envisaged an online captioning system where captioners worked remotely streaming captions of calls securely across the internet, followed by a transcript as soon as the call finished.
So, Tina established 121 Captions with a mission to do just that, using the best captioners and the most innovative technology. Our core team at 121 Captions includes court reporters and captioners, professional lip readers, certified lipreading teachers, deaf awareness trainers and sign language interpreters.
We also work with a hand-picked, international network of over 300 professionally-qualified captioners, all of whom are registered and accredited by internationally-recognised professional associations.
