Captions that enable easy learning!


Wanna caption your lecture videos, academic materials, e-learning videos or various events at your university? CaptioningStar provides you 100% accuracy.

Why captioning is in huge demand in universities?

  • You know, videos have changed the traditional pedagogy of learning things. Many universities and schools have transformed their method of teaching and depend on colourful videos to engage their students.
  • But these universities often forget the fact that not all their students have a good hearing ability.

About 15% of American adults (over 18 years) face some trouble in hearing.

 

To help them in understanding, many universities used sign language interpreters in their classrooms for lecture videos, cultural and sports events. But many students with hearing disabilities don’t learn sign language, which posed a huge challenge for universities.

So captions became the only option to help students with hearing disability.
