Captioning Key

These guidelines and preferred techniques are provided primarily for companies performing DCMP captioning work, but they will be useful to anyone (agencies, schools, parents, and others) desiring to learn how to caption or better perform the task. An overview is provided of the types, methods, and styles of captioning; presentation rate; text; language mechanics; sound effects; music; foreign language/dialect; and other special considerations. In addition, a Spanish translation of the Captioning Key is also available for download and use. (Translation of the Captioning Key provided by Dicapta.)
