Q: How are live captions and realtime captions created?

A: Live programming is captioned by specially trained realtime captioners who listen to a program as it is airing and “write” or respeak what they hear, sometimes at speeds of up to 250 words per minute. These words are fed into customized software which transmits the captions to display them live on your television screen. Read more about our realtime caption services.
