Reach out to LNS:

Web Videos/YouTube

Want to extend the accessibility of your web videos to a wider audience? LNS can caption your Flash, Windows Media, Quicktime, Real Player, or YouTubeTM web videos so you can reach those in the deaf and hard of hearing community and viewers who use captions as a reading literacy tool.

On October 8, 2010, President Obama signed the Twenty-First Century Communications and Video Accessibility Act (CVAA) into law. This act requires any television program already aired to be captioned when posted online. LNS can help you comply with this new law.

In addition to complying with the CVAA, captioning your web videos can also help your website's search engine optimization (SEO) ranking. Providing transcripts and captions for your web videos allows search engines to pick up on otherwise hidden keywords, thereby directiong potential viewers to your website.
