Captioning Services for Graduation & Commencement

We offer live captioning services for commencement ceremonies at colleges and universities. We have over 10 years of experience in this industry and know what it takes to pull off a large event seamlessly. We can transcribe accurately in realtime at up to 260 words per minute. That is more than enough to keep up with even the most rapid-fire speakers!

If you want the most professional and impressive captioning for your event, video captioning is the way to go. The speaker's image is projected onto a large screen as he or she is speaking, and subtitles appear beneath the speaker's image.

We would be happy to discuss different options with you and provide a free estimate. We'll help you find the solution that's right for your event. Contact Norma at

Dartmouth College has provided open captioning at its commencement ceremony for over 12 years.  When we used to rely on self-reporting, we would find ourselves scrambling to meet a request just weeks prior to an event.  Though initially we were aiming to meet a need for a handful of guests, what we actually found is that hundreds of hard-of-hearing guests are also benefitting from the captioning service. Thanks to the services of White Coat Captioning, the process for providing open captioning is easy, consistent, and accurate.
