Our expert captioners transcribe the spoken word into text displayed on a screen with 98% accuracy, all within 2-4 seconds. KARASCH provides both on-site and remote captioning - either by placing the CART technician in the location of the transcribed event or connecting them over the internet.

To make any content accessible to visually impaired participants, KARASCH provides real-time audio description of any non-verbal elements, actions and events taking place. This service is a useful and important accommodation in theatrical settings, during live-streamed events such as lectures, presentations or shows, as well as during meetings and lectures. Actions and events taking place in a live meeting, stream, presentation or lecture are described verbally over the user's audio platform of choice.

BROADCAST CAPTIONING

Broadcast captioning requires a specialized type of software and exceptionally skilled captioners. KARASCH most often uses broadcast captioners for TV programs as well as live, large-scale, public events. Or, simply, if a client specifically requests it. KARASCH has provided thousands of hours of captioning shown on Broadcast & Cable TV and during high-publicity events.
