In a perfect world, captioners would receive all the information and specialized vocabulary needed for each event. As the industry struggles to keep up with the high demand for services, a world with no prep is starting to become the norm. Providing good realtime is possible in a variety of situations, and is not necessarily contingent upon whether we receive prep in advance. It's a matter of adapting our writing and simplifying our processes for each job. To remain competitive, our approach needs to change. Simplifying our writing and procedures gives us an advantage when faced with challenging, on-the-fly captioning situations. This webinar will provide a framework for evaluating your procedures before every job and how you can maximize your realtime potential by reducing mental burden.
