Get Started

Audio description provides a way for individuals who are blind or have low vision to experience visual information through narrated descriptions. Verbit works with experienced professionals to deliver studio-quality descriptive audio that is clear and inclusive.

Get Started

From live captioning to CART services, Verbit delivers the same quality and support that have made us the industry leader in post-production closed captioning for educators, government agencies and cultural institutions.

Get Started

Production transcripts, or time-coded transcripts, are full transcripts of your media file with a periodic time stamp. Time stamps are typically placed at every speaker change and sometimes within a speaker’s monologue, but Verbit allows you to select the time stamp frequency to suit your needs.

Production transcripts are helpful for video editors to quickly identify specific moments for editing, saving significant time in post-production. Time-coded transcripts can also be used for interviews, focus groups, depositions, and panel discussion recordings.
