Get Compliant Under W3C WCAG v2.0

eScribe is ready to provide you with the audio-visual digital media transcription and closed captioning services you need in order for your clients to be AA compliant under the W3C WCAG v2.0.

Under the Disability Discrimination Act 1992 government agencies must ensure that people with disabilities have the same fundamental rights to access information and services as others in the community. As such, transcription and captioning of digital audio-visual content is mandatory. eScribe can assist you in meeting these requirements for, and on behalf of, your clients.

Expand and better serve your audience

  • The hearing impaired:  Closed captioning unlocks a world of video content.
  • Viewing in public places:  Sometimes it’s necessary to view video content where it may not be appropriate or possible to otherwise listen (workplaces, libraries, public transport).
  • Privacy:  Viewers of web video content often don’t want to share their activities with those around them.
  • Disturbance avoidance: Late at night or where others are sleeping, studying or working.

SEO Enhancement

Transcribed text, when posted along with the video, makes keyword rich content available for indexing by the search engines. This makes it a powerful Search Engine Optimisation feature for your web video content.
