Live captioning through transcription and re-speaking
Add accurate closed captions to your live stream by hiring professional captioners
Don’t let poor-quality captions hold you back – choose our leading remote captioning platform to add precise closed captions to your live stream. Whether you have your own captioners or need help finding the right professionals, we’ve got you covered.
Clevercast is the leading solution for remote captioning in real time. By providing an easy-to-use interface with integrations for re-speaking software and stenotype keyboards, professional captioners can get started right away.
This innovative way of generating the captions results in a higher caption quality with fewer errors. Because the captions are added to the live stream in an intelligent manner, our player is able to show entire phrases and sentences. This makes the captions easier to read and understand. Alternatively, you can choose to display the rolling text in a separate widget.
Need captioners? No problem. Our partnership with top language service providers allows us to find the best possible captioners for your event.
Supreme caption accuracy through near real-time correction
If two captioners work together – which is usually the case – one of them can make corrections to the other’s captions in near real-time. These corrections are applied to the captions before they are shown in the live stream and automatically translated into other languages. This greatly increases their accuracy and readability.
This is an optional feature. It causes the live stream to have a delay of one minute, instead of the eighteen-second latency which is the default for HTTP live streaming. This is necessary to keep the captions in sync with the live stream audio.
If you’re only hiring one captioner, you could take care of the correction yourself. This is a fairly straightforward task that can be done with an ordinary mouse and keyboard.
Automatic translation into other caption languages
Clevercast can automatically translate closed captions in real time and make the additional languages available in the live stream.
If you are using professional captioners – with or without correction – the initial captions will be accurate. Since these are used as the source for the automatic translation, the quality of the additional caption languages will also be high.
Do you have a high-profile event that requires human captioners for multiple languages? That is also possible. Note that if the live stream also contains simultaneous interpretation, captioners can listen to the translated audio in real time.
Cloud recording and Video on-Demand
Clevercast makes a cloud recording of the multilingual live stream, which can be downloaded. All caption languages can be downloaded as WebVTT files. This allows you to upload them to YouTube or social media channels for on-demand viewing.
You can also convert the cloud recording of your live stream to Video on-Demand (VoD). Our VoD player with all closed captions can be added to your site or platform by copying the embed code from the platform.
