General Information

By using IVA's captioning API, you can easily offer captions for the hearing impaired on IVA's video assets. With the captions, you can also have them translated through our partners at Rev.com and localize the videos by language. To get started, you will have to set up your account with Rev.com and then you can order the videos that you want captioned and translated to reach your diverse audience.

Before you begin:

  1. Sign up for an account at Rev.com .
  2. Request API Access. They will ask you to set up invoicing with them in order to enable access.
  3. Once approved, Rev.com support will send you Sandbox Keys for testing.
  4. Use the Sandbox Client and User Keys to test the /Rev/Order API.
  5. Request Production Keys from Rev.com support.

FAQ

When the order is complete or cancelled, IVA returns a JSON object that contains the Id for the caption and the Status. Example: { "id":4, "status": “Complete” } or { "id":6, "status": "Cancelled"}.

No. The ReferenceId in EE only lives inside IVA. Not on Rev. The Id for the caption is used in the client_ref in Rev.

Not currently. IVA waits for the job to be complete and when we receive notification from Rev we process and send notification to the client. Considering adding this at a future date.
