Here at Transcription City, we work with video on a daily basis. We provide a vast range of video transcription services to our clients including, transcription of uncut video (with or without time codes), post production transcripts, transcription for documentaries and reality TV shows, logging of video rushes, captioning services, subtitling services and transcription with visual descriptions.
Our video transcription services help clients to save time and money, whilst our subtitling and captioning services enable our clients to provide and distribute video that is both accessible to all and friendly to the search engines. With that in mind, we thought we’d explain some of the main advantages to having your online videos captioned.
Online Video Captioning
Here at Transcription City, we believe that online videos should be accessible to all and enjoyed by whoever chooses to view them. Having your videos captioned means that the content can be appreciated by all, meaning a larger, more diverse audience.
Video captioning is also an essential part of video optimization; as the search engines cannot interpret the content of your videos without text (just take a look at some of the automatic captioning on YouTube to witness how hard it is for the search engines to interpret your videos). Having the content of your videos transcribed accurately can increase your rankings in the search engines as the additional content will allow your videos to become indexed and searchable.
As well as offering a range of online subtitling and captioning services, we are now able to offer our clients online video subtitle and video captioning in .vtt format. This will allow for us to not only provide accurate dialogue, description and translation of your videos, but will also allow you to specify the layout, colour and style of your closed captions and subtitle files. To read up on .srt and .vtt captioning, look at this article on Wikipedia.
If you would like more information about any of our video transcription services, online subtitling or closed captioning services, why not get in touch today? We offer a range of formats, styles and layouts to suit your preferences. We also work with a variety of video and audio formats, including virtually all digital files, but also hard copies such as DVD, VHS, Cassette tapes and hard drives. Feel free to contact us at any time to let us know if you have any questions or concerns about having your videos transcribed.
We look forward to connecting with you soon!
