Messenger Pigeon: Captioning

Accessible Flexibility

Messenger Pigeon provides an online real-time transcript; necessary for deaf or hard-of-hearing students and beneficial for everyone.

Powered by technology, perfected by people. Scheduling a captioner for live classes, events, or meetings is a simple step to ensure accessibility, and allows students to personalise how they engage with their learning.

Fast and accurate

Transcripts are auto-generated from the audio and shared live to two links; one goes to the assigned captioner who attends the class remotely, and the other goes to the students. The captioner edits the automated AI transcript from their link. And the students can view the captions from theirs. Providing a choice between speed and accuracy.

There when you need it

Designed with flexibility in mind, students have the option to customise the interface, through sizing, positioning, fonts and colours.
