Frequently Asked Questions

What do I get back from Rev?

We produce a text-based caption file. We transcribe the audio of your video and time it. You can download examples below, under the section about what file formats we can provide.

The caption file is a separate sidecar file from your video. What you do next depends on how you intend to publish your video:

  • If you are publishing your video online (e.g. through Youtube or Kaltura) or submitting to a VoD service (e.g. iTunes or Hulu), then you can simply submit the caption files as-is.
  • If you want to add the captions as a caption track in your video, you'll need to take our caption file and encode it into the video. This is most common for DVD, Broadcast, or other distribution. We recommend using Adobe Premiere Pro CC.
How do you define caption quality?

We use the definition provided by the national Described and Captioned Media Program. Quality captioning is:

  • Accurate - Errorless transcription is the goal.
  • Consistent - Uniformity in style and presentation of all captioning features is crucial for viewer understanding.
  • Clear - A complete textual representation of the audio, including speaker identification and "atmospherics" (non-speech information), provide clarity.
  • Readable - captions are displayed with enough time to be read completely and are in synchronization with the audio.
  • Equal - equal access requires that the meaning and intention of the material is completely preserved.
Please explain your moneyback guarantee.
What video file formats can you accept?

We can accept all common digital video formats, such as MOV, AVI, MP4, VOB, and Ogg.

How can I view and edit the caption file?

Rev's free Captions Editor makes it easy to edit your captions directly in browser. With our new tool, customers can:

  • Preview the caption files as they would appear in your video player
  • Make adjustments to spelling, grammar, timing, and display of captions
  • Save any edits made to a version you control
  • Apply various post-processing modifications
  • Select from a variety of output formats and immediately download

The Captions Editor can be launched from your order delivery email or through the Order Details page. Existing customers can launch the editor here.

Do your captions meet requirements set by Apple, Amazon, Facebook, Netflix, Hulu, and other online stores?

Yes, we strive to have our caption files meet the requirements of all major online media platforms and distributors. We always recommend you double-check the content quality and caption technical requirements before you submit to a third party platform.
