How live captioning works (in 12 Seconds)

What is Ai-Live?

Ai-Live is a captioning and transcription service providing access to people who are deaf or hard-of-hearing. Our live captions transform the professional and educational experience of deaf and hard-of-hearing people by providing immediate access to the spoken word. Ai-Live captioning provides you with real-time, speech-to-text delivered remotely to any connected device.

How does Ai-Live work?

Ai-Live turns every web-enabled device into a piece of magic. Spoken words appear on the screen seconds after they are articulated. To achieve the highest quality standard, we use highly trained captioners and stenographers who listen to the live audio stream and re-speak what they hear, including punctuation and grammar, into the Ai-Live system which is converted into text and then streamed to your live device.

Where can you use Ai-Live?


Live captions greatly enhance the value of your event. Not only do live captions make your event accessible to delegates who are deaf or hard of hearing, they also assist attendees who have English as an additional language and help anyone to catch dialogue they may have missed.


Real-time, accurate, speech-to-text captions and transcripts for your meetings, teleconferences, appointments, interviews, workshops and training days or for conferences and events.  Ai-Live can be paid for with Access to Work (AtW) in the UK and the Employment Assistant Fund (EAF) in Australia.
