- 4 examples of successful online subtitling
1. Why subtitle in videoconferencing?
Here are 4 reasons why subtitling is your greatest asset if you are making videos.
1.1. Remove barriers to understanding
There are many barriers to understanding the audience during a videoconference. It must be said that many parameters can affect the listening skills of the participants:
- Poor sound quality of the video;
- The fact that the speaker is visible or not;
- Lack of regulation in speaking;
Subtitling a videoconference therefore makes sense in this context. Written transcription makes it much easier to access the visual content.
1.2. Addressing a multilingual audience
Do you want to make yourself known internationally? Translating your webinar is a must for building your audience. How do you expect to build your reputation in Finland if your content is not translated into Finnish? It’s just not possible!
1.3. Remain accessible to a deaf and hard of hearing audience
You may have participants in your audience who have hearing problems.
Be aware that an uncaptioned video conference is a real ordeal for someone who has problems hearing. So be inclusive.
Let people with hearing difficulties access your content with subtitles.
The little trick
Depending on your audience, customise the display of your subtitles. Configure the size and colour of your font.
This way you can offer your audience quality subtitles that are tailored to them.
1.4. Saving time
The written transcription of an audio or video is a real plus for you too. Get your .srt file and use it to :
- Make a report of your videoconference meeting;
- Offer a written trace to your subscribers in a few clicks;
- And so on.
In all cases, you do not rewrite everything. It’s interesting to save time, isn’t it?
So you’re wondering how to do quality subtitling without spending hours in front of your computer. We’ll give you the details below.
