Quality captioning enhances your image and your event. Captioning benefits not only the one in five attendees with some form of hearing loss, but also those whose attention wanes, English language learners, people who want to leave the room but still keep up with the talk, and even virtual participants. You can also easily use my transcription file to embed closed captions in your live stream and archived videos. Did you know that closed captions are indexed by YouTube and Google, but auto-generated caption files are not?
Yep. I captioned that!
Have you noticed the live CART captions at a recent conference? From Python to Ruby, Go, and HTML, your Tech Con is my specialty. I am a stenographer who also enjoys the challenge of complex medical terminology or even Icelandic geological findings. I will ensure that the proper terms, acronyms, names, and symbols will translate correctly, providing the highest caliber captioning of the most difficult materials. While ASR is a great tool, hire a human when quality counts and distractions are not an option!
I am an independent contractor residing in Wichita, Kansas, with my husband, four children, and a menagerie of pets. Although I call the heart of the midwest home, I enjoy traveling the world through my chosen profession as a conference stenographer. I have a demonstrated history of near flawless live captioning of highly technical content in conference settings, higher education, and broadcast media. My skills in stenography, captioning software, remote and on-site streaming text, project management, and team leadership have helped me to establish myself as one of the most sought-after conference captioners in the US and abroad.
Kudos to the captioner at the Hugos. They did a really great job! I studied court reporting and have a good idea how challenging live captioning is. Plus I spent the whole ceremony wondering what their brief for "Hugo" was. #HugoAwards2018 #Worldcon76
