ENCO’s Live Captioning Software Can Increase Your Reach To The Deaf Community

by | Mar 8, 2021 | Facilities, News, Production, Video, Worship Service Planning

Live streaming church services has become more of a standard since COVID hit. It became the only way many people could stay engaged with their churches due to social distancing restrictions. However, it had the potential to cause further distancing for individuals who are Deaf or hard of hearing.

ENCO has taken a step ahead to provide an option that ensures all people can stay connected. Their enCaption automated captioning software provides live captioning for streamed services. It also provides live open captioning on IMAG screens or mobile devices for in-person services.

In order to be as efficient and practical as possible, ENCO created enCaption with certain capabilities to create an inclusive environment. It can automate the conversion of spoken word into text in real time with a short latency. It delivers exceptional accuracy. It’s possible to teach enCaption to learn the spellings of unique names, places and things. It can caption popular foreign languages. It resides onsite within the existing SDI video workflow. And it’s ready to be used 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
