YouTube Live Captions
We’ll add live captions as you broadcast to YouTube using the camera in your pocket. It’s pretty simple – just send your live stream to us, we add captions and send them back to your channel.
Top questions to ask before booking
You can now bring your TV captions to YouTube Live. Our solution optimizes your existing broadcast captions for YouTube, with no up-front costs and no ongoing commitment. This development satisfies the FCC rules that require captioned programs shown on TV to be captioned when shown on the Internet.
Reach people with the sound off
With so many of us watching videos without sound, your live event can finally be understood by everyone watching on the subway, train, bus and park.
Make your content fully accessible
Adding live captions boosts reach and engagement, and it also positions your business as fully inclusive, providing access for viewers who are deaf and hard of hearing.
