Adding closed captioning to your session allows attendees to read what the speakers are saying, which can benefit your hearing impaired audience. With Accelevents, you are able to integrate a 3rd party closed captioning platform through the iframe feature. An iframe, also known as an inline frame, allows us to embed interactive media within a page. In this case, it is used to embed closed captioning from a provider like StreamText. The provider you use will provide you with the iframe code.

First you will need to select your 3rd party captioning platform. An example would be StreamText. Once you've signed up and set everything up on their end, they should generate a URL that you will insert to your Accelevents session.

Note: StreamText closed captioning is designed to work with a human caption provider, they do not offer automatic generated captions.

On Accelevents

  • Create a session through the Agenda & Speakers tab

  • On session details, scroll down to iframe

  • Paste in the URL from StreamText

  • The closed captioning should appear below the video when the session is viewed from the virtual event hub
