Closed captioning is an art. Prerecorded and live captioning at Captionmax is done by passionate, experienced closed captioning specialists who are trained in-house to carefully listen to the spoken word in any type of media and create a timed text file that can be broken into closed captions, formatted for SDH (subtitles for the Deaf and hard of hearing), and more. Our closed captions serve not only the Deaf and hard of hearing audiences, but the millions of people who prefer to watch content with the captions on. Captionmax’s closed captioning experts utilize the most advanced technologies in the media production industry to provide captioning services at the highest quality, fastest speed, and most secure levels.
Localizing your content ensures your message is fully inclusive and understood by your audience, regardless of language. Captionmax uses multilanguage experts and in-territory, native speakers to accurately translate and contextualize every aspect of your live and prerecorded media. Our experienced translators and multilanguage subtitlers create templates and timed text files that can be broken into closed captions, formatted for subtitles, and more.

We use the highest level of quality control to make sure your message remains accurate and on brand no matter where in the world it ends up.
Description makes the visual content of any media accessible to blind and low-vision audiences. Captionmax’s audio description experts are pioneers in the field who have helped shape the landscape of prerecorded video description services since their inception. Our experienced audio description staff includes creative writers, editors, VO (voiceover) artists, and audio engineers who mix a secondary audio track around the source dialogue to verbally narrate important visual details in your media in a professional and secure recording studio environment. Captionmax’s description services add a creative touch for the user by providing an immersive experience for the blind and low vision community.
Accurate, verbatim transcription for your media is key for total accessibility of content.

Captionmax’s professional closed captioners are also highly trained transcriptionists with the ability to format timed text files into a variety of script types ranging from simple, audio-only transcripts geared towards content searchability to complex scripting formats designed for ease in the translation and dubbing process.
