Vertical Caption Placement

FCC quality standards prohibit captions from obscuring essential visual information on the screen. We provide automated and manual caption placement services. Automated caption placement uses a patent-pending technology that recognizes onscreen text by analyzing the video frames. This is a very cost-effective option that satisfies most applications. For applications that require perfection, our manual caption placement service guarantees that captions do not block any relevant visual or textual content. With manual caption placement, a human editor will watch the video and move a caption frame to the top of the screen when it would otherwise obscure content in the lower third, then return the caption frame to the lower third when the relevant content is gone. The resulting caption file will comply with both iTunes’ and the FCC’s standards for caption placement.

Additional Transcript Review

While we guarantee over 99% accuracy on all files (in fact, our measured accuracy rate is 99.6%), some people require accuracy rates as close to 100% as possible. If you require an additional level of review beyond our normal QA process, you can order transcript review after your file has processed.

Video Clip Captioning

Our patent-pending technology automatically generates closed captions for clips by extracting them from the full-length video captions. This scalable process is extremely cost-effective and avoids the need to recreate closed captions that already exist for the full-length video.

Audio Description

3Play Media provides high quality, competitively priced audio description services for online video. Once your media files have been uploaded to our system, your audio description will be created by professional describers who utilize our unique workflow, process, and advanced technology.

After your files have been processed, you can instantly download your audio description files. We provide several different output formats and an audio description plugin to alleviate the technical difficulties that audio description can present.

Your description files will stay in your account indefinitely and you can access any formats anytime.

  • Audio file of description only (MP3, OGG, WAV)
  • Audio file of source audio & description (MP3, OGG, WAV)
  • Video file of source video, source video, & description (MP4)
  • Text file of description only (TXT, DOC)
  • Text file of transcript & description (TXT, Doc)
  • Timestamped text file of transcript & description (TXT, DOC)
  • Time-coded WebVTT audio description track

  • LMS Plugin Embed


    Our LMS Plugin Embed allows you add videos with captions, interactive transcripts, and audio description to Learning Management Systems (LMS) like Canvas, Blackboard, Moodle, and Desire2Learn Brightspace.

    Many LMS systems limit the types of code that can be used in course pages, which can make publishing videos with accessibility features difficult.

    The LMS Plugin Embed bypasses this issue by providing a simple iframe embed that includes your video, captions, interactive transcript, and an audio description plugin.

    Once you’ve transcribed your video, simply click “Publish Plugin > LMS Plugin Embed” and select the video platform with which your video is associated. Copy the iframe embed and paste it in your LMS system just like you would embed a YouTube video!

    What we do

    We provide premium closed captioning, transcription, audio description, and subtitling solutions at very competitive prices. Our goal is to simplify the process by providing a user-friendly account system, fast turnaround, flexible API’s, and integrations with a multitude of video players, platforms, and lecture capture systems. We create closed captions and subtitles in many different formats and languages. We also develop video search plugins and a range of tools that save time and cut costs. Our commitment to innovation has led to 10 patents (granted and pending)–all of which focus on making the captioning, subtitling, and transcription process more efficient and less expensive.

    Where we come from

    3Play Media was founded in 2007 by four MIT graduate students researching affordable ways to make video accessible through innovative technology. Drawing on research from the MIT Spoken Language Systems Group, we developed a more efficient captioning and transcription process that combines automatic speech recognition with human editing cleanup.

    We are currently based in Boston, Massachusetts.
