IVA allows you to offer captioning to your users for transcription in scenarios where your users are hearing impaired, as well as translations for audiences that may not understand a given video’s spoken language.

Adding captions to video is seamless and highly accurate when using our API, and we offer a wide variety of file types such as SRT, SBV, VTT, DXFP, and more. An example of a trailer with caption functionality integrated is below. Notice the Closed Captioning (CC) button on the status bar allowing you to toggle them on and off at will.

In order to take advantage of these captions and translations, you will need to order captions through our Caption Order API as well as implement captions into your own custom player via our Caption API.
