Live caption your events to boost accessibility and comprehension
VoiceBox provides live captioning for your webinars and live streams, so everyone can understand what is being said. Our versatile team is also ready to meet your needs when in-person and live events return.
Why add live captioning to your event?
Using VoiceBox for live captioning will make your events more accessible and interactive for everyone. That includes those who are deaf and hard of hearing, as well as non-native English speakers who may benefit from captions. What’s more, if you have a loud event with a large audience, adding live captioning ensures that noise doesn’t get in the way of speech and helps to reinforce the message you’re aiming to get across.
How a Live Captioning service works
Captioning can be used no matter the size of your event. Whether you’re operating on Zoom or in a large conference space, all you need is an internet connection and some form of display.
For online events, the display is simply the laptop/desktop/mobile you are using, whilst in-person events will require a large screen to present the captions on. The language of the speech is then instantaneously displayed on the screen. If you’re unsure about the set up, don’t worry – the team at VoiceBox can help at every step of the way.
Our live captioning service involves using real people (not just computers and technology) to transcribe your events in real-time for your audience to view. Our live captioners, who are often trained court reporters and stenographers, use a stenotype machine and another computer to translate phonetic symbols into captions. This live captioning is then displayed almost immediately. The combination of our experienced captioners with high quality technology guarantees that the language is accurately converted to on-screen text.
Our friendly, qualified and highly-experienced live captioners provide their services both in-person and remotely, meaning we can accommodate all of your virtual events too. Simply send in your request or query using our contact form, and one of our VoiceBox team members will be in touch to discuss your options with you.
”Thanks for (as always) providing quality subtitles and exceptional customer service. Your team made a real difference to yesterday’s event.”
