 What We Do 


We offer premium closed captioning, live auto-captioning, audio description, transcription, and subtitling solutions at competitive prices. We provide a user-friendly account system, fast turnaround, flexible APIs, and integrations with a multitude of video players, platforms, and lecture capture systems.

Our commitment to innovation has led to 7 patents (granted and pending)–all of which focus on making the captioning, audio description, subtitling, and transcription process more efficient and less expensive.


 Accessibility Matters 


We believe that accessibility matters and that the impact of accessibility is universal.

We aim to help create a more accessible web by providing services and resources that support video accessibility across websites, apps, and other digital interfaces.

Accessibility is about creating in a manner that is inclusive of all people, with and without disabilities, and providing an equal experience without barriers.
