Text on Tap

Live subtitles meets live events.

Text on Tap is the streaming platform of Text on Top. A captioner can stream the text over the Internet using a unique event ID-key. People can use this website text-on-tap.live to read along.
Additionally, with the Text on Tap Overlay application it is possible to present the text as true captions on your PowerPoint presentation. This allows you to screen-share your screen with others (using Teams, Zoom, ...) including captions!
It is also possible to provide real-time translations. The captioner simply switch on these desired target languages.
