What are open & closed captioning services?

Open & Closed captioning services help you reach a wider audience and improve accessibility by adding text to your screen that represents speech, sound effects and musical cues.

Adding closed captions to video is a crucial part of the production process. English captions improve video accessibility by enabling deaf or hard of hearing viewers to read spoken words on screen. Aside from creating an improved experience for those who are hard of hearing, you can also reach a larger audience with video captions.

To help video creators get the most out of their content, Rev offers accurate, fast video closed caption services.

Just want to give @rev a shout out for the work they did on two of my short films. They got them captioned ASAP and the turnaround was just 2 hours! Amazing service. I'm keeping these guys on my radar for future work.

@rev I've now used your captioning services for the last 2 videos I've published to my YouTube channel. Needless to say, I am very impressed with everything. Accuracy, cost, and promptness. I will be using #Rev for every video I publish from here on out. #youtube

Captions FAQ

What Is Closed Captioning?

The closed captioning definition is a timed transcript of the dialogue between characters on the screen

How to add captions to videos?

Some teams are big enough that they can add subtitles to video content internally. It is a longer process than outsourcing, but it is a way to save on extra costs, if that’s your priority. Here’s how to add captions to videos by yourself.

What's the difference between Open Captions and Closed Captions?

Closed captions can be turned on or off, allowing the viewer to have options. Open captions, on the other hand, are added to the video file or media player and cannot be turned off. To decide on closed caption vs open caption, you should decide on the viewing experience you want your audience to have.

ADA accessibility requirements for Videos?

Public entities, like governments, must caption their video content under Ada accessibility requirements. For private entities requirements are focused on uses in “place of public accommodation”. Such places must remove access barriers to people with disabilities.

What's the difference between Subtitles and Captions?

You may know that closed captions and subtitles are similar, but they aren’t the same. Captions are a transcription of dialogue, while subtitles are a translation. They both appear as text on the bottom of your screen.
