Live captions that look out for you.
3Play Media offers a single live caption service, including caption production by machine – Live Automatic Captioning – and caption production by 3Play Voice Writer contractors – Live Professional Captioning. Each type of caption production can be ordered separately; however, Live Professional Captioning includes an auto-failover to Live Automatic Captioning in case of interruption to human-powered captions.
Live Automatic Captioning is generated by automatic speech recognition (ASR) technology. While auto-captions have a lower accuracy rate compared to human-powered live captions, they are a great baseline option for increasing accessibility when professional captions are not an option! We recommend Live Automatic Captioning for non-high visibility events and meetings that don’t require professional captioning.
With traditional ASR services, the expectation is to turn it on and it just works. However, there are many responsibilities that stay hidden until it’s time to make it work. 3Play Media’s professional managed ASR solution ensures you have a worry-free experience and top-quality ASR for your high-visibility events
Live Professional Captioning relies on human captioners. In other words, it’s done by trained professionals! If quality and compliance are important to you when it comes to live captioning, Live Professional Captioning is the right choice for you. We recommend Live Professional Captioning for corporate videos, higher education videos, events, and web streaming.
3Play Media’s Virtual Caption Encoding solution streamlines the captioning workflow from listening through delivery. You direct your RTMP stream to 3Play Media. From there, we will generate your selected captioning type (automated or professional), encode the produced captions into an RTMP stream, and deliver them to a video platform of your choice. This workflow provides low-latency captions and eliminates complexity for a superior audience experience.
Live Professional Captioning gave me a lot of peace of mind for our Accessibility Camp Symposium. I definitely feel this product was worthwhile and helpful – it saved my sanity, relieved a lot of headaches, and helped carry the event’s accessibility. It’s been a great experience working with 3Play Media and a breath of fresh air to be able to put your trust in a vendor and know that we’re going to get quality live captions. Not only does 3Play care about accessibility, they care about me, and that translates clearly when utilizing their services like Live Professional Captioning.
