Boost Video Engagement Using Captions

Whether you need to provide more accessible content, get users to spend more time on your Facebook and YouTube videos, improve your SEO, or simply want to make your video’s content searchable, our subtitling and captions services will give you the results you need.

Take Note offers two tiers of captions, Premium & Automated in a wide range of formats.  Example: SRT (SubRip Text)

PREMIUM CAPTIONS (from £4.50 per min): Our Premium Captions (broadcast quality) are transcribed and edited by specialists to ensure perfect on-screen display that will make any customer happy. The captions can be customised to your requirements, with a final sign off before they are burnt in. Premium captions are the preferred form of captions for media and TV production clients and will deliver the quality you’d expect when reading the screen. SRT (SubRip) format unless otherwise specified.

While premium captions are the go-to service if you need your ‘on-screen’ display to be read by your audience, we also offer a low-cost service for instances when you’re just looking to make your video searchable. Enter automated captions.

AUTOMATED CAPTIONS (from £0.99 per min): This mix of human transcription and automated time alignment makes these captions MOST suitable for SEO, YouTube, Facebook, Vimeo, Wistia, Brightcove etc. and absolutely perfect for large media archives and searchable video databases. They are popular with clients who need captions to help boost engagement and search but want to avoid the higher editing cost required to create our broadcast quality premium captions. (Formats: XML, SRT, STM, TXT).

TRANSCRIPT ALIGNMENT: Already have transcripts? We can convert your transcripts into caption files via our Transcript Alignment Process. This service will automatically synchronise your text with your audio/video providing, the sound quality is of a good enough standard for the system to match the text and the audio. (Formats: XML, SRT, STM, TXT).
