April 30 2019, Okemos, MI — TechSmith Corporation, the global market leader in lecture capture solutions, announced today it’s newly updated TechSmith Knowmia educational video platform now integrates directly with 3Play Media to easily send videos for human-generated captioning. The new integration means anyone creating videos with Knowmia can now have those videos captioned by 3Play Media’s captioning professionals with just one click.
TechSmith Strategy Lead Shane Lovellette said integrating Knowmia’s market-leading video creation software with 3Play Media’s hassle-free captioning means video creators can have the peace of mind that their videos can better reach all learners.
“As more and more learning happens outside traditional classroom situations, institutions and instructors must ensure accessibility for all learners,” he said. “That accessibility is even easier now with this new integration — putting the power of human-generated captions just a click away.”
3Play Media Director of Marketing Lily Bond added that one of the benefits of greater accessibility is that captions offer a better learning experience for all students.
“In addition to making videos accessible for deaf viewers, research shows that accurate captions improve focus, comprehension, and engagement for all learners,” she said. “3Play Media is excited to partner with TechSmith Knowmia to make captioning videos as easy as a single click.”
Knowmia administrators can control what gets sent to 3PlayMedia with the integrated approval process. Once approved, 3PlayMedia creates highly-accurate, hassle-free captions that auto-publish to TechSmith Knowmia videos.
In addition to the integration with 3Play Media, the new version of TechSmith Knowmia offers more accurate and much faster speech-to-text captioning, as well as audio description track support for added accessibility.
3Play Media integration in TechSmith Knowmia is available to all users with a 3Play Media account.
