About Broadcast Subtitles
Broadcast subtitles are used for a number of different reasons but the main factors are to provide deaf or hard of hearing audiences access to speech and to offer translations of speech and information for foreign speakers.
Subtitles are text files which can include not only transcription of the spoken word, but also information on timings, line numbers, screen position and formatting on a video. However, the process of adding subtitles to video requires burning the text onto the visual content effectively as an image.
Subtitle files can be delivered to television channels, production companies or broadcast channels as either a text based subtitle file (encoded or not encoded) or burned onto a high quality video and provided as a complete project.
