For captioning and transcription, standard turnaround is 4 business days.
We also offer 2-business-days, 1-business-day, 8-hour, and 2-hour turnaround for an additional fee. There are video duration limitations on some of these faster turnaround options.
If you have content that is not time-sensitive, you can select the Extended Turnaround option, which gives you a discount for allowing up to 10 days for completion.
For automated transcript alignment and caption encoding, turnaround depends on the duration of your files and our capacity at the time of upload. Files are generally completed within a few hours and almost certainly by the next business day.
