¿Como Hacer Para Que Mis Programas Sean Subtitulados?

La inserción de “caption” o subtítulos ocultos es el proceso por el cual se convierte el contenido de audio de un programa de televisión, un Webcast, una película, un video, CD-ROM, DVD, un evento en vivo y en directo o cualquier otro tipo de producción a texto, y se hace que éste a su vez aparezca en una pantalla o monitor. Dicho texto incluye la identificación de los hablantes, efectos de sonido y descripción de la música. En esencia, el “caption” o subtítulo oculto se basa no solo en lo que se dice, sino también en lo que se comunica. Es decir, no es una mera transcripción de texto. about description, captioning, dcmp, spanish
