Captioning services: How we work
At 121 Captions we pride ourselves that our live captioning services make a difference. Not just to employees, students and other individuals who have hearing loss, but also to the organisations – businesses and universities – who we work with.
Our live captioning services team have over 20 years’ experience working with deaf people, and with organisations looking to make their events or services accessible.
How do live captioning services work?
Imagine sitting at a conference or meeting with your laptop, tablet or smartphone. A microphone picks up the speech and relays it to our captioner, who types it word-for-word at up to 250 words per minute using a phonetic keyboard. The text appears on your screen with just one second time delay. That’s our live captioning service – speedy, accurate, value for money.
Our live captioning services use the only caption-streaming platform that places captions on top of your PowerPoint slides or YouTube video, so you only need one screen.
Humans only need apply
Our live captioning services use only accredited, professional human captioners to give you much more accurate captioning than any automatic speech recognition technology can manage.
Captioning services: What we do
Live captioning services make your meetings, events, conferences and calls accessible not only to clients and colleagues who are deaf, but also those who are non-native English speakers. Captioning services make good business sense.
121 captioners stream live captions from your lecture, seminar or meeting over the internet direct to your laptop, tablet or smartphone.
