At the same time, captioning also complements venues with a noisy background such as auditoriums, stadiums, and other places with a large gathering of people.
Broadcasting networks nowadays are bounded by laws and regulated by the Federal Communication Commission or (FCC), requiring them to produce captions or sign language insets on the television screens. This is to ensure that the important information of the video programs, whether live or recorded are generally accessible to all viewers.
Classification of captioning
Fortunately, closed captioning companies have all the necessary tools and techniques to accommodate various needs of a client. If the video is intended for all types of viewers, open captioning could be the appropriate choice wherein captions are permanently displayed at all times. On the other hand, closed captioning could only be activated when needed.
In some cases, clients may select real-time captioning or other offline captioning processes such as pop-up, roll-up, and subtitling. Real-timecaptioning is performed simultaneously during live broadcast including live interviews and public speaking.
Roll-up captioning displays two or three lines of captions at a time and often preferred when there is limited broadcast time. Lastly, pop-up captioning shows two or three lines which are synchronized, grouped together, and form a meaning easily understood by the viewers.
