Any meeting, any event, any church service - basically anything that is spoken - can be live captioned. Aberdeen offers this service to government agencies, universities, churches, and more to give the deaf and hard-of-hearing equal access. Whether it be council members, students, or members of your congregation, all can join in realtime either via a television broadcast, online stream, webinar, or even onsite from a web-enabled portable or mobile device.
Live captioning is done in real-time by a captioner using a special steno machine. Because they are writing live, they do not have the ability to go back and fix any mistakes. This type of captioning is done for live programming, like a sports game, news broadcast, or awards ceremony.
Post-production captioning is captioned by a caption editor who uses a transcript written by a professional transcriber. This is done for shows that are prerecorded for a later broadcast. The caption editor has the ability to fix up the program perfectly and make any additional corrections specified by the client.
We know that our captioning can only be as good as those who create them. That's why we have spent years growing a team of highly trained, experienced captioners with the largest known dictionaries in the industry, always choosing the best captioner for your particular program genre. Although we guarantee our captioners to write 200 words a minute with 98% accuracy or higher, our captioners can type from around 250 to 300+ words per minute. You'll find our live writers to always be on time, reliable, and never missing a millisecond of your programming.
