meet FCC & Federal Section 508 regs



Add Subtitles to streaming video on the web!


                                  We create the subtitle file (normally an SRT) used by YouTube or Vimeo

                                  which adds subtitles to your video when the 'cc' button is clicked.

                    Once video starts, click the CC button.

                       This is an open caption example. Used with permission from Archdiocese of San Francisco.

                       This is what your closed-captions will look like with broadcast video.


Demo using new WebVTT subtitles  

                    This is an example of placing captions top & bottom; demo almost working.

                       A surcharge applies; doing the placement adds to the cost.


We now add subtitles to Amazon Videos.
