By removing language barriers and increasing transparency, audiences around the world can understand and digest any type of communication. Research shows that when viewers can’t understand or hear a speaker, they quickly zone out and consider the information less credible. This directly impacts your business revenue and reduces the effectiveness of your virtual events strategy. GlobalMeet Webcast’s innovative technology unlocks one of the most significant hurdles to global communication.
Content Captioning Promotes Accessibility
With more than 7,100+ languages spoken around the world, the next generation of content revolves around audiences feeling comfortable and engaged in their native tongue. As content is more accessible, viewers can stream on-demand or live on their own schedule in their own way. Also, as people are increasingly on-the-go, 60% of videos are viewed on mobile phones — often without the sound on! Also, nearly 1 in 20 Americans have some type of hearing impairment. Embracing content captioning and paying close attention to content accessibility not only promotes an inclusive environment but helps get the most out of your content.
As 91% of viewers watch everyday videos with captions turned on, content captioning helps encourage engagement, increase comprehension, and extend viewing times. Whether you’re streaming an event in another language or tuning into a live stream from an overseas brand, captioning offers your business the unique opportunity to stand out and increase your reach.
