Live captioning process at CaptioningStar


  • Step 1– Once an inquiry is done regarding remote live captioning service, our sales expert would contact the client to get the details of the date and time of the event and the duration of the event.
  • Step 2 – Then we would inquire about the purpose of the event that is going to take place and the video hosting platform like Zoom, Granicus, GoToWebinar, Webex, Wowza, etc they work with.
  • Step 3 – Based on the details, we would plan to schedule a free demonstration of our remote live captioning service with the video hosting platform, say, whether Zoom, Granicus, GoToWebinar, Webex or Wowza, knowing the availability of our captioning experts and the client. W offer a maximum of two trials, the basic trial and if not satisfied, the second trial.

We comprise a team of remote live captioning experts who are experienced in working with different products.

  • Step 4– All the queries regarding pricing will be cleared and would schedule the event once half the payment is paid in advance. Once the event is successfully held, the rest of the payment would be paid by the client.

Live event’s transcripts: For live events, we deliver free-transcripts to the clients only on a demand basis.

Few tips to make your captions ADA compliant in a snap


  • Enter just 32 characters or less in a line. Adding more characters per line may increase the difficulty of the viewer’s to read.
  • Ensure only one to three lines of text appear on the screen for about 3-6 seconds which is then replaced by the next caption.
  • Verify that captions are available till the end of the video, even at places where no speakers are available.
  • Add time codes to synchronize with the audio.
  • Use both upper and lower case letters.
  • Make your captions accessible to whoever needs them.
  • Display your captions for a duration that is enough to be read.
  • Identify speakers in your captions when more than one person is on screen or when the speaker is not seen on the screen.
  • Make sure that the captions are spelled correctly, inclusive of proper punctuation and grammar.
  • Caption all the words, despite the language or dialect.
  • Include music, sound effects or other descriptions within brackets like [music] or [laughter]

On Windows, a red ADA icon appears below your caption editor, if the caption style you chose for is not ADA compliant.

To comply with ADA, click the ADA dropdown and select Make Compliant.
