Why NCI’s CaptionSentry for Automated Captions? 
CaptionSentry utilizes state-of-the-art speech-to-text technology to transform real-time audio into nearly verbatim closed captions with unrivaled accuracy. CaptionSentry also offers versatility; whether clients want to be hands-on and in control of activating the ASR or they prefer to have it managed off-site, NCI allows the client to select the option most complementary to their workflow.  

With accuracy rates typically ranging from 94% to 98%, CaptionSentry is the best ASR product on the market. To determine verbatim accuracy, NCI uses a proprietary program that compares a verbatim transcript against the ASR-generated captions. Latency can be as low as two seconds if an NCIStream device is placed onsite. If the client prefers not to have a device onsite, latency is only three to four seconds. 

CaptionSentry is well-suited for TV/cable stations, government entities, corporations, universities, and other educational institutions looking for the affordable convenience of ASR and the peace of mind that a reserve of highly trained human captioners are also available if/as needed.

With a highly skilled captioning staff and state-of-the-art facilities, NCI supplies world-class captioning, subtitling and translation, and Audio Description services for TV broadcasting, Internet, Video On Demand, and educational and government institutions.
