Webcasters create and transmit via the Internet captions for meetings, conferences, seminars and other organized gatherings.
These captioners either listen to the event live, or listen to a recording of it in cases where a previously recorded event is receiving captions. They transcribe the spoken words into text which is transmitted over the Internet, often along with a video recording of the event.
These events can include:
- Sporting Events
- Corporate Meetings
- Training Seminars
- Distance Learning Courses
- Press Events
- Government Conferences
In addition to transcribing, webcasters with foreign language experience are often called upon to translate such events into another language for international audiences.
