Serve your deaf and hard-of-hearing students with accurate, live, automated captions in the classroom. Combine with a live streaming video service and your remote students can see those captions in real-time as well. enCaption can also enable your live and recorded videos to be searchable across your media library by making transcripts of every word said.
Accessibility is essential with universities, who seek to provide the best classroom experience for students with hearing loss. For these students, real-time, live captioning is essential to their education. However traditional captioning services provided by professional transcribers can be prohibitively expensive, difficult to schedule, and unreliable. And many automated solutions can be inaccurate and difficult to deploy. ENCO’s enCaption is a fully on-prem, cost-effective solution that is simple to deploy and ready to go 24/7.
enCaption is incredibly capable: it can deliver open captions onto existing video for in-room display while also controlling an external SDI closed caption embedder you already have or optionally embed closed captions itself into SDI, all while saving transcripts and sidecar files for later video editing and online lecture databases.
Our on-premise solution means no Internet is needed with no Cloud connections to fail - and because it's computerized and automated, it can caption 24/7, without ever taking a break - this means it's always online and ready to caption, whenever you need it.
enCaption flexes to meet your operation’s specific needs, with Cloud solutions available, along with hybrid on-premise/cloud options.
