Webinars and podcasts
Webinars, podcasts, and online conferences increase exponentially each year, but few of them are captioned. Do you want to capture a wider audience? Caption your events and let people know about them. Deaf and hard of hearing people want to keep pace with their hearing colleagues in education, business, and the many professional fields that are becoming increasingly web-centric. Make that happen by captioning your events through SpeechText Access.
Expand your customer base
Deaf and hard of hearing people make up the biggest group of disabled people in the country. A fifth of the U.S. population has hearing loss significant enough to benefit from captioning. And they are as interested in your web-based events as anyone else. By making your web events accessible via captioning you’ll tap into a whole new audience, one predisposed to become regular customers because you are providing the accessibility they need.
Extend your broadcasting reach
STA can integrate captions with webcast hosting platforms, such as Blackboard, WebEx, and BizVision. If you don’t have a platform, we can provide a simple URL to stream captions over the Internet. People can access the captions anywhere they can access the Internet. They can view the captioning on PCs, laptops,
tablets—even cell phones.
Improve the searchability of your event
As a by-product of our work, you’ll receive a word-for-word transcript of the event. By posting the text online you’ll make your event more searchable on the web. In other words, more people will find out about you and your page views go up.
