Closed Captioning can be quite confusing for a newcomer to the technology–but it also has many advantages, and is even required by law in certain situations. There are many different ways to add captions to your video depending on what you intend to do with it. At OrangeSlice, we take the guessing out of the equation entirely. Let us know what you’re wanting to do with your video, and we’ll work with you to make sure that your captions will run perfectly. We will even work directly with a television station to make sure that the output format lines up with their standards.

Why Caption?

  • Improved Indexing and Searching: Use captions or transcripts as meta data to make your video text-searchable, and to make web-embedded video search engine friendly.
  • Viewer Flexibility: With the increasing popularity of mobile devices, viewers may be in environments where access to the audio is limited. Captioning allows them to view content whether they are in the library, at a concert or on a noisy bus.
  • Improved Accessibility for ESL Viewers: There are more viewers with English as a second language than there are with English as a first language — captioning helps your message reach larger audiences.
  • Improved Comprehension: Captioning improves comprehension and retention of media content for all viewers.
