Order multilingual SDH subtitles

Are your videos easily understood by your hearing-impaired audience? You’ve invested in your video content and it’s doing its job well. But is it accessible to your whole audience? If you’re not supplying good subtitling, you risk your content being difficult to understand for audience members who have hearing loss.

What are multilingual SDH subtitles?

SDH subtitles explain more than just the spoken words in your video content. They deliver text to identify other sounds, such as who is speaking, music and environmental noises. This helps your audience to understand context and plot details.

SDH subtitles are similar to closed captions, which we also offer. Closed captions are usually provided in HEX encoding, while SDH subtitles can be viewed as regular text and are delivered in SRT, VTT or any other subtitling format you require.
