Total Webcasting Continues Their Innovation with Assistive Technology Services

The following press release was published on on September 4, 2018, and is also viewable on their website here.

Since 2007, Total Webcasting has been providing its premier ‘Glass to Glass’ Webcasting solution to customers in the government, education, corporate, and non-profit sectors. Combining Total Asset Manager, TAM(SM), a cloud-based content publishing system; and the TW Mediacart (SM), a portable production system, Total Webcasting is a one-stop, white glove, full-service Webcasting provider.

Total Webcasting is committed to the development of Assistive Technologies for better access to Live and On-demand Webcasts for people with disabilities. As a leading provider of Full Service Video Production for government, education, and corporate organizations, Total Webcasting has advanced its live Webcast closed captioning service, now with In Room/Real-time Captions, so in-person attendees can benefit from Total Webcasting’s current Live Closed Caption functionality. According to the National Institute of Health, “Approximately 15% of American adults (37.5 million) aged 18 and over report some trouble hearing.” To address the issue of meeting participants having trouble following the program due to hearing challenges, Total Webcasting has added a low-cost solution that provides “in the room viewing” of the real-time transcript. Using ultra low latency streaming for signal acquisition and time shifting for Webcast viewing, Total Webcasting offers an uncompromised and innovative solution for a very challenging problem.

Total Webcasting has been integrating post-production closed captions to their Webcasts since 2007. In 2014, Total Transcript Integration (TTI) was released, which links media to transcripts, making all Total Webcasting videos ‘searchable.’ Today, TTI is fully functioning, using a combination of AI and human review for highly accurate transcription, systematic workflow, and a 12-hour or under turnaround no matter how long the content.
