Whether you are targeting audiences online or via traditional broadcast mediums, getting your closed captions right first time can be a huge time saver. Closed captioning services are a legal requirement for broadcast media, under the Equality Act, and are a definite must when it comes to submitting your content to the big video platforms. But with so many guidelines, formats and providers to navigate between, it can be hard to know what’s required or how to choose between closed caption conversions for broadcast.
At Capital Captions, our captioning services include transcription, translation, subtitling and closed captions. In addition, we work with caption format conversions, which prove invaluable when it comes to the huge variance in broadcaster specifications. Some closed caption conversions for broadcast options are outlined below.
