Captioning Made Simple

Real-Time Remote Captioning

AMAC has a team of trained and certified captionists who can meet your accessibility needs without the added costs of travel. By using internet delivery systems, we are able to provide our captions at a low rate and in whatever situation you may need them, including one-on-one meetings, webinars, classroom environments, or events. Users appreciate the independence and self-reliance that Real-Time Remote Captioning provides them.

Communication Access Real-time Translation (CART)

Provided remotely when a person prefers near verbatim captioning. CART is most effective for providing access to late-deafened adults who are accustomed to hearing all the elements of spoken language. Also available - CART for Webinar and CART for Large Audiences, such as commencement.

Multimedia Services

Transcription and Captioning Services

When you need unparalleled accessibility built into video content, AMAC can provide services meeting the rigorous WCAG (Web Content Accessibility Guidelines) 2.1, as recommended by the W3C (Worldwide Web Consortium) in June 2018. We produce all of our accessible media products with minimal to no automation involved. All final products are checked for accuracy and correct synchronization before delivery. Our history with higher education institutions has given us a unique perspective on the accessibility needs of educational material and the importance of accuracy. We strive for 100% accuracy with all of our content, including science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) content. AMAC provides captioning for most media platforms. You simply provide AMAC with the video, and we return the captioned product back in the format most useful to you.

Audio Description

AMAC was one of the earliest providers of audio description for videos. Our audio description team has been perfecting best practices in audio description since 2013. We’ve provided described media for educational and governmental agencies, and public and private universities across the country. Deliverables for all audio description products include an MP4 video file with extended description and an accessible text script of the audio description including time codes for when the description occurs in the video.

AMAC Accessible Media Planning

If your school or business has never provided video or audio accommodations, but is ready to do so, AMAC can help you get started. At no charge for AMAC Members, we'll help you create a basic implementation plan, starting with the most important and common media, such as the media available to all persons on your website. Let us know how we can help you.
