Generate Live Captions in Real-Time

A live caption tool is a quicker and easier fix for captioning, compared to other means of captioning.

Live captioning is needed in various areas. For example, a teacher can find it beneficial to live caption their lectures in order to ensure that students understand every single word. And after the lecture, the professor can share the transcription with the students so they can study the lecture.

Live captions are faster than automatic captions because they are generated as you speak. Spoken dialogue is instantly transcribed and turned into captions. All you have to do is speak directly onto your microphone and let the live caption generator work.

Improved Accessibility Through Live Captioning

Accessibility is another great benefit of live captioning as it allows individuals who exclusively work through voice direction to generate transcripts or caption audio.

Another area of media that can benefit from live captioning is podcasts. Real-time captioning podcasts is an easy solution for generating the transcript of a podcast. Captioning podcast episodes and having the transcript at the disposal of your audience allows hearing-impaired individuals to consume the content.

Live captioning also allows sight-impaired individuals to live caption audio content. These benefits make live captioning an impressive tool for maximizing accessibility, creating an easy and quick way to live caption audio.

What is live captions vs auto captions?

Auto captions are captions generated automatically by putting text onto a video through a subtitle generator. They aren't created in real-time as opposed to live captions. Live-captions are speech generated into text as soon as one speaks.


The process is completely automated. Your live-captions and audio files are encrypted at rest and in transit and cannot be accessed by anyone else unless you authorize. Once you delete a file, all data including audio files will be instantly deleted. Check our security page for more!
