Subtitles for your videos in different platforms

Captions made with Spoken ONLINE save time for social media creators without compromising the accuracy and clarity of the video.  Subtitles also make the videos more clear and memorable for the viewer compared to videos without captions.

Automatic subtitles are generated using artificial intelligence, and the accuracy has currently reached the level of 90 %.

Subtitles made with Spoken ONLINE are always downloadable, editable and handled with high security and confidentiality in our system.

Subtitles also make the videos more accessible to people with hearing disabilities, which is why the EU launched the Web Accessibility Directive in 2020.

Subtitles according to the EU’s Web Accessibility Directive

Starting in the autumn of 2020 in EU, all public organisations must provide captions for video and audio content published on their website according to the Web Accessibility Directive (Directive 2016/2102). If the content of the video and/or audio is otherwise available on the website (e.g. in text format), there is no need for captions.

Applying the Web Accessibility Directive in practice is based on the WCAG 2.1., i.e. the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines. The guidelines are commonly used as a basis for the accessibility requirement legislation in EU many countries.

According to the directive, all meaningful spoken content of the video or recording must be available in written form. The video must include captions in the same language as the video is spoken. Therefore, videos in English must have captions available in English.

Accessible videos with Spoken ONLINE

With Spoken ONLINE you can automatically generate subtitles of the speech in the video with correct timings. Accessible subtitles require also other information, e.g. speaker identification, but currently this information is not added automatically.

To make your video accessible, i.e. to fill EU’s Web Accessiblity Directive’s requirements, you can open the ready made .srt subtitle file for example in Notepad and add the following information:

  • Who is speaking (e.g. [John:])
  • Other essential sounds, such as background music and other soundscape in the background (e.g. [the police siren sounds] or [a knock on the door])
