Accuracy and Quality

3Play Media provides captions and transcripts that are at least 99% accurate, even in cases of poor audio quality, multiple speakers, difficult content, and accents. All of our work is done in the U.S. by professional transcriptionists who are native English speakers. We specialize in educational content and our staff of 800+ transcriptionists have expertise across many different domains. Custom vocabulary and instructions can be added for every file, which further improves accuracy and quality. Learn more

Integrated with Lecture Capture and Video Platforms

3Play Media is integrated with many different video players, platforms, and lecture capture systems. You can also use our flexible APIs to build your own automated workflows. Learn more

Interactive Transcript

In addition to captions and transcripts, you have the option to add an interactive transcript, which lets users interact with your video in an entirely new way. Users can search the video and navigate by clicking on any word to jump to that exact point. It’s even possible to share sections of a video by simply highlighting the text. Learn more
