YouTube Ready Logo  "YouTube Ready" Qualified Captioning Vendors

While captions were originally developed for the millions of individuals who are deaf or hard of hearing, they are also an aid to the reading and literacy skills development of many others. And as an added bonus on YouTube, viewers may chose to auto-translate captions into another language and/or locate videos more readily through a word search.

The Described and Captioned Media Program (DCMP) has the mission to advocate for equal media access, and for the establishment and maintenance of quality standards for captioning by service providers. Captioning guidelines are made available for the use of all vendors, and a captioning quality evaluation is administered to vendors who wish to perform work for the DCMP. The vendors listed below were already quality certified by the DCMP, and they have additionally passed a review of their YouTube captioning capability. As a result, they have been qualified as a "YouTube Ready" Captioning Vendor. View their captioned company video and visit their website for more information about their services.

To qualify as "YouTube Ready," a vendor must:

  • Be certified by the DCMP to appear on the DCMP's list of "Approved Captioning Service Vendors" and have been approved on or before May 15, 2010.
  • Have a valid YouTube account and channel.
  • Maintain at least one video on its YouTube channel that displays captions provided by the vendor's own captioning services.
  • Maintain at least one captioned video on its YouTube channel that describes vendor's captioning services in detail.
  • Publicly post online the rates it charges to provide capions for videos that may be uploaded to YouTube.
  • Publicly post online its contact information for questions and complaints.
  • Be able to receive videos from its clients through online delivery. Vendor may not require its clients to provide videos on a hard DVD or VHS copy in order to receive captioning services.

Although these vendors met quality standards at the time of evaluation, no guarantee is made concerning the quality of any agency's subsequent work. Purchasers of captioning services should proof the work they receive, and report problems to the agency. We welcome feedback concerning your experience with qualified vendors--please email us at info@dcmp.org.
