Another stand-out aspect of our Offline Captioning department at U.S. Captioning Company is our Quality Assurance Department. Each script is edited to ensure 100% verbatim accuracy and strict adherence to the FCC guidelines. After each script has gone through our assessment, it goes to our Time Coding department. While synchronizing the captions precisely with the audio/video file and perfecting the formatting, our technicians will also quality check the final product to ensure the highest quality standards before sending the ready-to-air file back to our client.
