CaptionPoint will be available for Mac and Windows, to start. You'll use the app to both build and run your captions.
We'll tell you everything you need to know to get your captions running. And we'll also have tips on how to make them pretty.
Using simple formatting, you'll turn your lines of dialogue into captions. Colors, fonts, spacing: you'll have full control over the final result.
Connect your computer to a projector, TV, or mobile device and click "go". You advance the captions during the show. You're captioning live theater!
If you'd rather us do the heavy lifting, we've got a team that knows how to build captions from a script, fast. The finished captions will be downloaded into your account and you can make any edits (sound cues, last minute script changes) you need.
You don't have time to edit what we've built? No problem. Send us archival video and audio from two nights of your performance and we can do all the fine-tuning of your captions, too.
Chicagoland Area Only:
The full-service package! We'll build, edit, and then run your captions the night (or nights) of the show if you live in or near Chicago. No need to find or train staff for the night.
The CaptionPoint team has a combined 30+ years of design, development, project management, and theater experience.
We have a unique understanding of a theater's time and budgetary constraints... we know how imperative it is for CaptionPoint to be both affordable and easy to use.
