SO MANY PLATFORMS…SO MANY CAPTION FILE FORMATS!

REALTIME FILE FORMATS

Because real time captioning is happening the moment the live event is taking place, there are no specific file formats. Instead, we rely on the software platform in use or a 3rd party plugin that will allow online participants to view the text stream in a separate window. All live captioning is delivered via IP which is a more stable connection which will reduce lagging.

Upon the completion of your live event, Metro Captions will deliver a complete transcript of the event which serves as a reference document for any attendees who wish to review the material. Transcriptions can be time coded and provided in a 2 column format for multilingual subtitling if need be.
