Review and Edit Machine Captions


Print Friendly

The accuracy of machine captions is dependent on the quality of the recording and the speaker’s voice. Typically, the accuracy of machine captions will be about 70 – 80%; therefore, the captions must be reviewed and manually edited to 100% accuracy to meet ADA Standards. For more information on ADA Standards, click here.

NOTE: Captions should remain UNPUBLISHED until reviewed and edited, to 100% accuracy, in order to meet ADA Standards.
