Captioning in ASLClose
Open ASL


Wavefront Centre provides captioning services. This new world of virtual platforms means providing captions like the ones you see on TV are important for participants to make sure everyone is included.


Real-time Closed Captioning

Real-time Closed Captioning is created when a captioner instantaneously transcribes the spoken to text using specialized software and equipment. This is used to caption news, sports, governmental proceedings and other content as well as live streaming on the web.


Communication Access Real-time Translation (CART) is a speech-to-text service for hard of hearing individuals who need communication access. We can provide this service remotely for individuals in educational or business settings.

Offline Closed Captioning

Offline Closed Captioning is created through the transcription of the spoken word and the assignment of time codes to those captions so that they are synced to the video

Wavefront Centre for Communication Accessibility is the operating name for Western Institute for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing, a registered charitable organization.
Charitable Registration Number #108200098RR0001
