ON24 is a video conferencing service that works well for webinars, presentations, and meetings. Recently, the need to have a platform for remote purposes has grown tremendously and so has the need for accessibility.
Meeting platforms like ON24 are built to embed captions on the same screen as the video. It’s a relatively simple process, and the captions are viewable directly on the screen to everyone attending the meeting or webinar.
