TranscriptionStar’s Integrations: Closed Captioning Simplified.
What puts off people who want their videos transcribed/captioned?
- Long processes to get to the transcription part
- Security of their files being transferred using third-party platforms
- Keeping constant contact with the transcription company to know the status of their files
4 smart integrations that’ll speed up your captioning process.
Everything you do has a process, and so does having your videos transcribed. When you send a video to the transcription company, you have to manually upload it to them, or give them the credentials to where they can download it from.
Manually uploading them is time consuming when you have multiple videos to share, or when it is a regular requirement, like when you maintain a YouTube channel. And, sharing credentials is the last thing anyone would do, if safer and easier methods were available.
“I didn’t want to share the login details of my YouTube channel, but, I didn’t also want to upload my videos all over again to the transcription company.” says, Victor Frost, a YouTuber who uploads videos every day.
