Turnaround options to match your needs

Keeping pace with the news cycle is critical. We know publishers cannot wait on captions to publish videos, so we offer numerous turnaround options to fit your needs. We value your deadlines and have special mechanisms in place to ensure we deliver services on time.

Our fastest turnaround is 2-hours – one of the fastest in the industry. We also offer an extended option, at a discounted price, for projects that do not need to rush the delivery.

Every file goes through a multi-step quality assurance process, including two rounds of human review to ensure a 99% accuracy rate.

We have a Progressive Delivery option if you need captions quicker than two hours. With Progressive Delivery, we deliver files when they meet certain thresholds, such as the estimated accuracy rate. While a Progressive Delivery file will not be as accurate as a file that goes through our full review process, this can be an excellent option for adding interim captions or transcription while waiting for a fully compliant and accurate file.



Ready to grow with you as you scale

For growing publishing companies looking to expand their audiences, finding an accessibility solution that can grow with you is a challenge. Our robust solution can uphold services at scale and is designed to grow as you grow. We built our system to handle large quantities of video per day without notice – always at 99% accuracy.
