VITAC Offline Captioning Webinar Set for Nov. 13

by: David Titmus

VITAC, a full-service leader in captioning and accessibility services for more than 30 years, is proud to be the exclusive provider of offline captioning for prerecorded programming on more than two dozen television networks.

Unlike captions that are created in real time for live programs or events, offline captions are created in advance for prerecorded programs.

How Offline Captions Work logoOur offline captioners are more than just good transcribers and spellers — they’re masters of description, line breaks, timing, readability, sound effects, and common style rules that average viewers may not notice. In short, they’re experts in their craft.

And it’s a craft we take very seriously.

Join host Brittany Winland, VITAC Director of Marketing Communications, and presenter James MacPherson, VITAC Account Manager, on Tuesday, Nov. 13, at 12 noon ET for a webinar detailing the process of offline captioning.

The webinar will discuss, among other topics, how prerecorded captions are created and broadcast; the role that captions play in everyday life; captioning requirements; and the important things you should know when ordering captions.

From video clips of your favorite late night television shows posted on social media to corporate training videos, captioning prerecorded content helps satisfy ADA regulations and also makes information equally accessible for the 50 million people in the deaf and hard-of-hearing community (DHOH) and attainable for broader audiences (especially millennials) that choose captions over sound.
