Live Captioning

A live captioner types live subtitles/closed captions for online events, meetings and conferences, using our own specialist software. Our specialist training and professional experience means we are able to produce much better quality, more accurate subtitles/captions than automated software.

Live subtitles/captions make your event much more accessible for people with hearing loss (deaf, deafened and hard of hearing). They can also help those with sensory processing difficulties or for whom English is not their first language.

Our live captioner, Marion, has over fifteen years experience of live captioning in higher and further education, arts  and community settings. She is qualified to Level 3 (OCN) and is a member of the Association of Notetaking Professionals. She uses Text on Tap, which means the subtitles/captions can be viewed within Zoom, or via a separate link if using any other platform.

Our standard rate is £35 per hour for week days 9am-5pm and £40 an hour for evenings and weekends. We may be able to offer discounts, depending on your budget. Please contact us at typeology.coop@gmail.com for more information or to discuss your needs (we do not charge for discussion and preparation time).
