Different Aspects of Closed Captioning Services

Texts that appear on the bottom of the screen and represent the spoken words of the video or audio being played is called Closed captioning (CC). Closed captions are used in videos to benefit the hard of hearing and helping them gain equal access in watching movies and videos.

Companies offering Closed captioning services support visual aids as subtitles that are integrated as texts from all the dialogues and sounds from the background. Professional closed captioners mainly offer various services for real time or pre-recorded videos.

The main difference between open and closed captions are the visibility of the texts on the screen. Open captions are always switched on and cannot be turned off at any point in time. They are always visible because they are "burnt" into the video. Whereas, closed captions can be turned on and off as per the viewer’s choice. They can only be displayed when the media player or video sharing site is available.

How does this work?

Captioners type the subtitles and captions into a computer program and add it to the intended video frame by frame. The captioners are highly skilled and have great accuracy and eye for detailing while loading the captions.
