Closed Captioning


#1

We are a state government agency and are going to use our newly purchased Pearl 2 to stream live Board meetings. We need to comply with accessibility requirements and provide live captioning of the meeting.

We currently have live captioners, but are unable to input the captions into our video, in a closed captioned setting.

Trying to find out what solutions we might be able to find with the Pearl 2.

You would either need to have the captions hard coded as part of the video signal being captured by the Pearl 2. Or alternatively use an online captioning service that could ingest the stream of the Pearl then add captioning either in an outgoing stream or separately to be added to a web page. Unfortunately we haven’t tested any of these services ourselves, but a quick google search brought up https://streamtext.net/ as a potential option
