Quality live captioning for events

We deliver quality, live captions across all platforms, offering a wide variety of innovative solutions and technical support to make virtual events both accessible and inclusive of everyone. All of our captioners are carefully hand-picked by us, we continuously monitor and invest in new speech-to-text technology, so you can be sure that we will always provide the right service for you.

What we do

Captioner, Stenographer, Speech-to-Text Reporter, Palantypist are all terms used to describe “human beings” who use a special keyboard and phonetic code to produce live accurate text at high speeds in real-time. This can be speeds of up to 300 words per minute delivered at 99% accuracy contextually and grammatically.

At MyClearText we use highly skilled captioners who train for many years, to accurately report live speech, enabling deaf, deafened and hard-of-hearing people to actively participate in meetings and events.

Our services are also useful for people with ADHD, Dyspraxia, Dyslexia, auditory processing disorders, and for those with English as a second language.

We work for individuals who need this type of accessibility at work, and for companies seeking to make their events visibly accessible as we provide live integrated captions to large screens, livestreams, personal devices, any online platform and social media such as Zoom, Facebook Live and YouTube.


Our technical expertise enables us to offer and develop innovative solutions for our clients.


At the start of the Covid-19 pandemic we made it possible for our clients to hold virtual events with accurate real-time captions delivered to global audiences of 1000+. Consequently this is the “new normal” for us and we have become so proficient at it we can respond with minimal notice.
