Talking Type Captions

Here are 9 reasons why you should go with Back To The Paper (dba for our parent company Talking Type Captions) for your CCSL, Closed Captioning and Audio Descriptions.
  1. US Based: Our head office is based in Bethesda, Maryland. Which means we are bound by US laws and adhere to them very seriously.
  2. Since 2003: We’ve been doing closed captioning since 2003 and a CCSL is just an extension of that. With our 20 years of experience, you are definitely in the right hands.
  3. Fastest TAT: We have evolved to become specialists in creating post production scripts like CCSL and closed captioning. We typically create a CCSL within 7 business days. That’s because we have specialized in doing just this.
  4. High Security: We understand the need for utmost security in handling your unreleased media content. In most cases, your media is never physically downloaded. Or if it is downloaded, it is done just once at our head office and then uploaded to our secure server. We work with the most advanced online based software that allows all our employees and vendors to work on your proxy watermarked video without having to download it. This enhances the security exponentially. Your media is safe with us.
  5. Precise Timecodes: The timecodes for CCSL are manually captured and are frame precise in HH:MM:SS:FF format. Since we evolved from a closed captioning service, we imbibed the significance of capturing frame precise timecodes. And that is how we continue to grab timecodes for a CCSL as well. As a result, you can use the CCSL for subtitling or dubbing without any additional work or cost.
  6. Reformats: In our experience, almost every project goes through some changes or tweaks after submission to a network or distributor. Sometimes it’s just a change of a logo at the beginning or it could be a lot of changes in the content. We are able to handle the changes very easily and with minimal amount of cost. We deliver reformats within 24 — 48 hours.
  7. Add a Broadcast Quality Closed Captioning File for Only an Additional $2.00 per Minute: For every CCSL that we create, we start with creating a closed captioning file of all the dialogue. By the time we start writing the shot description (continuity), the closed captioning is more than half done. That is why we are able to offer you a broadcast quality closed captioning file for only an additional $2.00 per minute. If done just by itself, a closed captioning file costs $8.00 per minute.
  8. Free CCSL and Closed Captioning for Trailers: This is something that we are only offering to you. This is not a regular discount. The cost of creating a CCSL and CC for a trailer is $150.00.
  9. We Love What We Do: You will see that in our work.
