Closed Captioning Services for Universities

We deliver high-quality Closed Captioning Services for Universities and Schools worldwide.

The learning perspective of each individual has changed across the globe. Thousands of educational institutions have transformed from traditional methods to remote learning. They have adopted high-quality education technology and digital capabilities.

Captioning has been the main part of this so-called technology. At CaptioningStar, we are a team of human captioners who deliver premium quality captions for your live lectures, academic videos, and e-learning materials with integrations into your existing LMS platform.

Live Captioning for in-person lectures and live-streamed lectures

The perfect way to make your University and other higher education live sessions accessible to students is just by enabling real-time captions. In live captioning, we give students immediate access to the text version of the spoken words to assist them better in their studies, especially the deaf and hard of hearing, non-native English speakers, English language learners, and those with learning disabilities.

We seamlessly integrate with any LMS platform or Video conferencing app of your choice for e-learning. Get accurate captions to provide apt learning materials from CaptioningStar.

This is all you want to know

We work with all the widely used LMS platforms.

These LMS applications help you administer, track, report, and deliver learning programs. Other e-learning video platforms include Zoom, Brightcove, Vimeo, Kaltura, and Youtube.

Most of the time, videos might not efficiently deliver 100% learning outcomes. Captions and subtitles improve clarity and retention for students, especially for students with hearing and learning disabilities.
