Why You Should Include Closed Captioning To Your Events
Have you ever thought about how inclusive your brand or organization is for its online content? Closed captioning or subtitles can be done in multiple languages for both Live and Pre-Recorded content, making it accessible and inclusive to speakers of nearly any language across the world. This is a powerful tool provided by Kiwi Productions.
Breaking Language Barriers
Closed captioning enables you to simultaneously translate a presenters content into any language while the live event is happening. This is beneficial for global companies or any organization that wants to ensure its ESL event participants don't miss out on any important information. Our team at Kiwi Productions provides source dialogue that is accurately transcribed in real time by captioning experts which is sent through our translation engine to aid comprehension and retention of your media or event as it's happening.
Accessibility and Visual Reinforcement
According to Statistics Canada, 38% of adults aged between 20 to 79 years have hearing loss, while 37% have tinnitus (hearing impairment). In light of this, closed captioning not only makes your content easier to digest but also makes your live event more accessible.
Captions also help with visual reinforcement as it has been proven that people have an easier time understanding and remembering content if they read along with what's happening on screen. Sometimes your virtual audience may be viewing your content in an environment where raising the volume can be a form of disturbance, that's where subtitles come in handy.
Who Should Use Closed Captioning?
Corporations for their events and media content, Not-for-profits to capitalize on their diverse audiences, Government entities and departments to be accommodative to the general public, Educational Institutions, Entertainment and Media companies.
