For churches and other houses of worship, spreading the Word and creating a sense of community are vitally important goals. And, with today’s social distancing due to the Covid-19 pandemic, live streaming to websites and/or social media has become a vital lifeline for churches to continue serving and expanding their congregation.
By going a step further and providing live captioning of streamed services, churches can ensure that all that want to virtually attend, including the deaf and hard of hearing, are accommodated. And, for those attending services in person, viewing displays of live open captioning on IMAG screens or on iPads and other mobile devices makes it easier for the deaf and hard of hearing to follow along.
To be most practical and efficient, the ideal captioning solution should:
• Automate the conversion of the spoken word into text in real-time
• Deliver exceptional accuracy
• Learn spellings of unique names, places, and things
• Caption in popular foreign languages
• Reside on-site within the existing SDI video workflow and
• Be ready to roll 24/7
These valuable features are just some of the attributes of the enCaption automated captioning solution from ENCO. If your church is interested in providing live or file-based, open/closed broadcast-quality captions, discover how enCaption and other complementary ENCO products can support and enhance your media ministry’s workflow and outreach.
