Accuracy and Quality

3Play Media provides captions and transcripts that are at least 99% accurate, even in cases of poor audio quality, multiple speakers, difficult content, and accents. All of our work is done in the U.S. by professional transcriptionists who are native English speakers. We specialize in educational content and our staff of thousands of transcriptionists have expertise across many different domains. Learn more

Turnaround and Deadline Compliance

Our standard turnaround is 3 days and we provide a range of expedited options, including a 2-hour turnaround service. Our platform is based on a patented process for the way content is assigned to our staff so that almost every deadline is met. Our deadline compliance is more than 98%, and we automatically discount overdue files to the achieved turnaround level.

Integrated with Lecture Capture and Video Platforms

3Play Media is integrated with many different video players, platforms, and lecture capture systems. You can also use our flexible APIs to build your own automated workflows. Integrations include YouTube, Kaltura, Echo360, Mediasite, Panopto, Yuja, and Voicethread. Learn more

YouTube Integration

3Play Media is integrated with YouTube to make the captioning process as easy as possible. Simply allow 3Play Media to access your YouTube channel, then select the videos you want captioned. We’ll post the captions directly back to your YouTube videos when they’re complete. If you want to add captions to YouTube videos you don’t own, simply upload a YouTube link and use the 3Play Plugin to publish an iframe of the video and a captions overlay. Learn more

3Play Plugin: Interactive Transcript

In addition to captions and transcripts, you have the option to add an interactive transcript, which lets users interact with your video in an entirely new way. Users can search the video and navigate by clicking on any word to jump to that exact point. It’s even possible to share sections of a video by simply highlighting the text. The plugin is a single iframe embed code that works with all video players and in any LMS system. Learn more

Audio Description

3Play Media provides audio description services. Audio description narrates the relevant visual information in a video and is an accommodation for blind and low vision viewers. We use human describers and a synthesized speech output to provide a more cost-effective, flexible solution. Both standard and extended audio description are available. Learn more

Computer Generated Transcription and Captioning

The accuracy of computer generated transcripts depends on input conditions, such as the number of speakers, fluency and organization of speakers, acoustic environment, recording quality, and language domain. While the average accuracy across all our content is about 85%, we can achieve 95%+ accuracy with favorable conditions. 

You always have the option to upgrade a file from computerized captioning to human captioning.

Audio Description

 

Audio description is an accommodation for blind and low-vision viewers that narrates the critical visual information in a video to provide context, clarify speakers, and articulate visual elements. We offer standard and extended description. With the standard description service, descriptions fit into natural pauses in the video’s audio track. With our extended service, the descriptions are not constrained to the natural pauses of a video. The extended service inserts pauses in the video to make room for descriptions, as needed.
