StreamCast App A Powerful Tool For Captioners
An innovative tool for captioners, StreamCast, is designed to allow captions to be provided over programs without native captioning integrated. With StreamCast, captioners and CART providers can now include captions on a number of applications. From overlaying a presentation with live captions to providing open captions for Facebook Live, StreamCast makes it easy for your event to be accessible.
Recognizing the difficulty of providing captions based on presentation applications, StreamText designed StreamCast as a universal solution. The application works as an overlay on the program being used. StreamCast can provide captions over PowerPoints and videos. Font sizes, colors, and spacing can also be customized within the application to fit the user's presentation and captioning style. Currently, StreamCast supports Windows and Mac operating systems with plans to expand to Linux in the near future. StreamCast is a free application that can be downloaded from the StreamText website.
"We are very excited about how the StreamText community has adopted StreamCast for a number of captioning and CART services. It is the best method for integrating captions directly into applications that don't have native CC support," shares Nick Wilkie, StreamText's CEO. "We released the application just under a year ago. Captioners are telling us how the StreamCast app has become an integral part of their workflow."
