VITAC and Take 1 will be at next week’s “Podcast Show” in London to meet with podcast creators and distributors and showcase just how simple it is to make podcasts accessible to all audiences.
Podcasts and podcast listenership has boomed in recent years, and you don’t need to look too hard to see why. There currently are 464 million podcast listeners worldwide and that number is expected to jump to around 505 million by the end of 2024. With more than five million podcasts (and 70 million podcast episodes!) available to stream or download, there is sure to be something that appeals to everyone.
Increasingly, though, podcasts and podcasting platforms have come under fire over questions of accessibility with many arguing that without captions and/or transcripts, podcasts are inaccessible for those who are deaf or hard of hearing. A recent lawsuit filed by the National Association of the Deaf and Disability Rights Advocates argues that SiriusXM, Stitcher, and Pandora are in violation of the Americans with Disabilities Act for failing to make their podcasts accessible.
VITAC offers podcast transcription for prerecorded and live content. Our service features unmatched accuracy, quick turnaround times, and versatile formatting options that exceed accessibility standards and meet a wide range of entertainment industry needs.
All our transcripts are verified for quality assurance (spelling, punctuation, line breaks, and stylistic issues, among other things) before they are delivered and can be created in a variety of formats compatible with all major podcasting platforms, including Sirius XM, iTunes, Audible, and Stitcher.
