VITAC is the largest provider of closed captioning for nationally broadcast programming, and has exclusive agreements with several major television networks and many local news networks across the country. We offer both live captioning and offline captioning for a wide range of programs, videos, and events, including:
We also work with school districts, universities, Fortune 100 companies, local businesses, government agencies, and event centers across the country to caption, among other things, classroom lectures and education videos, corporate training videos and web conferences, and council meetings and municipal press conferences.
We also offer Spanish-language captioning, translation, transcription, and Secondary Audio Dubbing (SAP) services, and French-language captions for live and prerecorded programming as well as French captions for English programming (and vice versa). Our multi-language services team provides quick-turnaround translation and subtitling for a variety of languages on almost any video format or web platform.
And if you are looking to share your content more broadly via social media, we can help with that, too. We keep up with the newest technologies, and our social media integration solutions can create captions for all your live and prerecorded social video content.
In the same manner that captions provide a visual way to experience sound, audio description provides an audio means to experience video for individuals who are blind or with low vision. The service inserts audio-narrated descriptions of a program’s key visual elements into natural pauses between the program’s dialogue. We provide audio description for major television networks, video producers, and corporations.
Where captioning is generally a textual representation of all on-screen audio, subtitling is the process in which graphic files are encoded openly into the video. Our experts create subtitles in dozens of languages for a wide range of clients, including TV networks, broadcasters, video programmers, and producers.
VITAC offers transcripts, in the form of text files, of your captioned event containing everything we captioned for you. These are provided at no extra cost. They offer your audience additional accessibility, and give you a written record of your audio or video event for review and to share with others.
We offer Spanish dubbing, the creation of a new spoken Spanish audio track for a video originally created in English. Unlike multi-language subtitles, dubbing enables viewers to follow the program’s audio in their native tongue.
