Easily create descriptive video transcripts by merging audio descriptions and subtitle events in Closed Caption Creator.
Descriptive video transcripts (DVTs) are text files that contain both the dialogue and video descriptions. DVTs can be converted into screen-reader friendly HTML and added to a website along with the accompanying video. This provides an alternative viewing experience for users who may be Deaf or have difficulty seeing the visual information. Screen-readers should be able to read a DVT and provide the same information as watching the video.
Closed Caption Creator makes it easy to create and edit DVT files by allowing users to merge subtitle and audio description events into a single document. Timestamps, text, and formatting can be edited based on the user's requirements.
DVT files can be exported in multiple formats, including plaintext files, Microsoft Word documents (.docx), and CSV.
