Real-time Captioning System
Wireless & Multilingual
Unique wireless captioning solution
Text on Top is a unique wireless and low cost solution for real-time captioning during a presentation or congress. A captioner types what the speaker is saying and enables with Text on Top that the whole audience can follow the speaker.
Our aim is to improve the communication between groups of people by offering this easy, low cost and smart high-tech solution. We help to improve presentations and congresses by solving the problem between speakers and non native speaking audiences. But of course also deaf and hard of hearing people can participate in your congress or presentation.
How does it work?
In a nutshell: You need at least 2 Text on Top devices. One for the computer of the captioner or reporter and one for the computer on which the presentation is being shown. These will have a connection and the software makes sure that the spoken text, being typed by the captioner or reporter, is shown nicely on top of the presentation.
An overview of the advantages
Text on Top operates wireless. So no wires or cables in the room. The transmitters and receivers ‘talk’ perfectly to each other. So you can be sure of a perfect connection between captioner and presenter. At the same time no Wi-Fi or LAN-connection is necessary.
Ease of use
Text on Top can be used on Windows, Mac and Linux. It also works perfectly in combination with every keyboard and speech recognition software. It is not necessary to install any software. So, it’s really Plug & Play. How easy is that?
You can have the software make translations. Very handy when there are multiple nationalities present in the audience. Text on Top can provide up to 16 languages real-time and simultaneously. When using the translation service, the captioner will need an internet connection.
The solution for hearing issues
Not only deaf and hard of hearing people can profit from the text during a presentation. Also think of people with a visual impairment (tablet solution) or when the speaker has a strong accent or talks unclearly.
