You should add caption-converter.com to the list! Great tool for quickly converting between formats.

Hello. I was wondering if there was a way to convert a TRS (transcriber output file) to SRT or any of the main subtitle formats.

Very interesting! I'm glad that community submitted CC has been instituted! Definitely allows a larger community to enjoy youtube! Not to mention, for all of those content creators that don't have the time to CC their videos, now there is a way for the community to help! Good news all around! Thanks for the info!!

Hey Bill, Not sure I'm supposed to post the info here but haven't found another contact link. I have 25 years of captioning experience and am captioning videos at www.captionsfortheweb.com. Also, I have started a website to archive auto-generated captioning errors. I call it www.ottocapshuns.com. Thanks!

Thanks, Bill! I would love to be added to such a list. For my part, I'm going to start a page of captioning resources on my captionsfortheweb and captioningforchurches sites, where I hope to link to interesting sites like yours. Meanwhile, I continue trying to get churches to caption their online videos. I've come up with the following new short paragraph that I hope will encourage them to do so. Thought I'd paste it below in case you might be interested.... A special word for churches: Keep in mind that some of the deaf friends that you can generate through closed-captioning your videos may become members of your congregation, giving you more power as a church to be still more inclusive. The idea here is not to grudgingly supply captioning to a handful of remote deaf viewers that you'll probably never hear from, but rather to grow your congregation through the very process of this gesture of inclusiveness. Far from being a burden on your congregation then, closed-captioning should be seen as a way for you to grow your religious community, if not inside the brick and mortar church itself then certainly in cyberspace. Approach the concept of closed-captioning in this spirit -- as an opportunity for outreach -- and you may turn an apparent financial burden into a promising avenue of growth.

Cool Brian - I edited your post to make the url a link, so people can visit your site more easily. If you feel like it, you can add a comment to this post https://billcreswell.wordpress.com/2015/03/18/captioning-vendors/. If there is any response or need, I would be interested in adding a list of captioning vendors to this site, that lists their specialties, markets, typical customer and sample links.

Hi, Bill. Thanks for the heads-up on captioningtheword.com. I'll check it out after typing this message. As a freelance offline captioner, I was surprised to learn recently how few online religious videos are captioned (other than laughably so by "auto-cap"). That's why I've started captioningforchurches.com. My plan is to applaud churches for their inclusiveness, but to remind them that inclusiveness should be their policy for the deaf as well.

Hi, Bill. I've just launched an online service to help people find and compare captioning vendors, services, and rates. I'd love the opportunity to talk with you about it. Please let me know when you might have some time. - Michael
