Real-time Closed Captioning is created when a captioner instantaneously transcribes the spoken to text using specialized software and equipment. This is used to caption news, sports, governmental proceedings and other content as well as live streaming on the web.
Offline Closed Captioning is created through the transcription of the spoken word and the assignment of time codes to those captions so that they are synced to the video.
Our 24 hour on-call service allows us to respond to your last-minute captioning requirements. Should breaking news or other last-minute additions require immediate captioning, we can always have a captioner on the air with a few minutes' notice.
Web captioning makes streamed media accessible to the deaf and hard of hearing community, as well as to individuals in noise-sensitive environments such as gyms, airports, pubs, schools, libraries, etc.
CART, Communication Access Real-time Translation, is a speech-to-text service for hard of hearing individuals who need communication access. NCC provides this service remotely for individuals in educational or business setting.
Canadian regulations require that broadcasters monitor the quality of their captions on a monthly basis. NCC has the expertise and personnel to perform this time consuming process so you don’t have to.
