Why invest in live subtitles?

Live subtitles are perfect for any event in which you want to maximise engagement and inclusion, whether it’s in person or remote. Here are our top reasons to invest in live subtitles:

  • Guarantee accessibility for those who may be deaf or hard of hearing
  • Promote inclusion for those neurodiverse participants who could benefit from captions to reinforce the event’s messaging
  • Boost comprehension for those who are non-native English speakers or anyone who is simply watching from a noisier environment.
  • Live stream captioning in another language for an event with multilingual participants
  • Our live transcription services can create a post-event transcript for those not present
  • Maximise engagement and participation for all

Our approach

At VoiceBox, we take the time to understand your event, company and industry before we kick off our professional live subtitles service. This can be carried out either in-person or remotely, and can be carried out multilingually if required.

Our clients trust us time and time again to enhance accessibility of their events and to foster better engagement and comprehension. We are proud of our first-rate, personalised customer service – just look at our 98% customer satisfaction rate. If you’re interested in a top-quality live subtitles service, we’d love to hear from you.

How do live subtitles work?

Our live subtitles service might seem to work like magic but it’s all down to VoiceBox’s combination of experienced captioners, handpicked for their expertise and niche, and the highest quality technology. All of this guarantees that your speech is accurately captured into on-screen text.

  • Here’s how it works:
  • Whether you’re operating on a video conferencing platform like Zoom or Skype or physically based in a conference space, all you’ll need to provide is an internet connection and some form of display – whether that happens to be through a large screen or multiple screens at a venue, or by hosting a Zoom call.
  • Our trained live subtitlers – who are real people, also known as stenographers – will transcribe the event’s dialogue in real time using a specialist stenotype machine and another computer to translate phonetic symbols into captions.
  • The subtitles will then be instantaneously displayed on your screen/s or stream for your audience to read without interfering with your event. (Our team can type up to 300 words a minute.)

We also offer live transcription services should you wish to have a post-event transcript, or we can easily generate one from our subtitles. VoiceBox supports the technical set up and rehearsals, and will provide a dedicated project manager who will attend the event to ensure everything runs smoothly.

If you’re unsure about this set-up or want to know more about live stream captioning, don’t worry – the team at VoiceBox can advise you at every step of the way. Simply tell us more about your event using our contact form, and one of our friendly and experienced VoiceBox team members will be in touch to discuss how we can work together.

What do our clients say?

Thanks for (as always) providing quality subtitles and exceptional customer service. Your team made a real difference to yesterday’s event.

  • For budget-friendly live subtitles, turn to DrCaptions

VoiceBox understands that not every event that requires live subtitles will be broadcast externally, or will require 100% accuracy. In the unpredictable world of event organising, we know that sometimes budget or last-minute availability has to take priority.


Why not try DrCaptions, VoiceBox’s AI-powered live stream captioning feature?

Best suited to online live streaming or for in-person communication (where and when it’s safe), DrCaptions guarantees accessibility for your event, meeting or conference. The service provides AI-powered captions that covert audio and dialogue into text that appears on a stream in real time.
