We support different file formats. For one, the Scenarist Closed Captioning (.scc) format is the widely used format in captioning. Because of its older NTSC-based subtitle format, it is used in Broadcast TV. The same format is utilized in Video on Demand (VoD) stores like Hulu and iTunes. This .scc file format can be edited using Adobe Premier Pro and Final Cut Pro. Another top choice for captioning format is SubRip (.srt). This particular format can be edited easily with the use of Notepad and TextEdit. No wonder, this is the top file format for Vimeo and YouTube videos.
Closed captioning (CC) and subtitling are basically the same. It's the process of displaying texts on videos, television programs, and other multimedia projects which provides the audience with additional information. This is particularly helpful to people with hearing impairments. The audio portion of a program is basically converted into text as it happens which can be in verbatim or in edited form. Sometimes, the description of non-speech elements like sound effects, musical cues, and translation of foreign languages are included. If for some reason you want to change the file format of your caption file, don't hesitate to CALL US and we'll convert it for FREE.
If you want to view the captions, simply upload the video on YouTube (as a private video) and then upload the caption file. There are many software programs available in the market today to edit caption files. As of the moment, we don't use any 'Adobe Video Editing Software.' As alternative you can use compatible software like 'Final Cut Pro 7' and 'FCP X.' You can also use 'Subtitle Edit. For PC. Free', just make sure to use the latest edition to avoid any bugs.
We can accept all common digital video formats, such as MOV, AVI, MP4, VOB, Mpeg ,
Yes providing a transcript is helpful - simply upload the Transcripts with your video so we can perform the captioning files using this script For translation you can send us the script but it should be time stamped every 5 seconds in order to perform the captioning or we can have our Translation team to perform the time coding before they are converted into captioning files. Pricing will vary if the Transcripts and Translation documents is provided from your end.
