Amara, a free and easy way to caption video

Submitted by Cathy Rodriguez

Amara is a free and easy-to-use video captioning and translation service. Captioning video makes them accessible for the hearing-impaired and improves the video’s search results. In addition to captioning video, you can also translate it into other languages.

Oftentimes captioning and/or translating video is very time-consuming. Amara has made the task virtually pain-free. It works with many video sites such as YouTube, Vimeo, Blip.TV, and USstream.

For the easy process plus a short video showing how it works, see the complete article in the IT News blog.
