Voistream video captioning

3Play Media integrates with Viostream so that you can order professional closed captioning for your videos directly within your Viostream account.

What is Viostream?

Viostream is a cloud-based enterprise video platform where you can securely store and stream video content. Companies use Viostream to share live and on-demand video with audiences, customers, and employees.

How Viostream Captioning Works

Video captioning is necessary to make your videos accessible to users with disabilities. This is especially important if your company is subject to accessibility laws, as captions are part of compliance with WCAG 2.0, Section 508, and the ADA.

You can order professional closed captions for your Viostream videos directly within the platform.

In your Viostream media library, navigate to the video you want captioned.

Click on Accessibility and then select Video to Text: order captions. This sends your video to 3Play Media to produce 99%+ accurate captions, guaranteed.

As soon as the captions are ready, they will automatically load onto your Viostream video. Users can use the CC button to toggle them on or off.
