Let all your videos be heard
Are you reaching your full viewership with your video by reaching everyone? People use closed captions to view videos when sound is not an option at the time for many reasons. Don't let the person watching videos at work secretly miss out on your video because you didn't add closed captioning.
Know the closed captioning laws
Did you know that if your video airs on broadcast television, and is also available for viewing on the internet then according the FCC rules for closed captioning, your video must be closed captioned on the web too. Rules and regulations aside, there are other reasons for captioning web videos, and they fall into the category off accessibility.
Voice Recognition Captioning?
Voice recognition captions like the ones you can turn on for YouTube videos still have a long way to go before they even come close in accuracy. When you allow your videos to be automatically captioned through YouTube or Vimeo the chance of them being accurate is very low. In fact they can bring an entirely different message to your audience than what you've worked so hard to bring forth in your videos. Why take the chance?
Globalize your videos on the web
Reaching more customers with your videos only makes sense. If more people see your products or services it can open up new opportunities for your company to grow. Making them accessible only makes sense when you think of how many more people you will be able to reach by adding closed captioning. Many times we find ourselves in places that sound isn't an option, but captioning is quiet and no one knows your secretly watching videos.
We caption YouTube videos
Do you upload your videos to YouTube? Consider adding accurate closed captioning, which will increase you viewership, and get your message out. YouTube offers voice recognition captioning, but it doesn't accurately reflect the voices on the video. Don't take a chance on incorrect translations hurting the quality of your videos that you've worked hard to produce, or that you've paid to produce. Let Impact Media caption your videos on YouTube.
We close caption Vimeo videos
Vimeo is a great way to promote your videos and make them available for anyone to view. Why not take it a little bit further by adding accurate closed captioning to your videos so that you're accessible to everyone. Impact Media can add closed captioning to all of your Vimeo videos, whether they are short blurbs about your company, your music videos, or you've produced full length movies.
