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.

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.
