In this quick Q+A, VoiceBox answers your frequently-asked questions about our professional live captioning service.
What is live captioning?
In case you weren’t aware, live captioning has seen a surge in demand during the shift to digital working. This is because, as events have shifted online, live captioning boosts the reach of your content for audience segments to whom it would be otherwise inaccessible, including those who are hard of hearing or deaf. Live captioning does this by providing access to spoken dialogue displayed as text on a screen and delivered in real-time.
Also commonly referred to as CART, meaning Communication Access Real-Time Translation, live captioning can provide captions remotely too.
Does VoiceBox use computer-generated live captioning?
VoiceBox use specialist and experienced human transcribers rather than computers to convert speech into text. This is carried out by live captioning experts to ensure the text is accurate and accessible.
