Access Captions supports NCRA Strong, a committee of the
National Court Reporters Association which promotes the skills and professionalism of stenographic court reporters and captioners.
NCRA Strong says:
"The real question isn’t whether you should caption your content;
it’s how you should do it."
"The best approach to captioning remains rooted in the human experience of the spoken word. Professionals trained to provide captions bring human sensitivities and contextual awareness to captioning that no Automated Speech Recognition (ASR) system can."
"Captions provide accurate access to the audible content on the screen.
If captions present that content in ways that make no sense,
the captions are useless."
"The most accurate, highest quality captions remain those captured by the human ear of trained captioning professionals to avoid the gaffes and error rates associated with speech recognition solutions."
