Create Custom Graphics and Titles To Display Inside Live Google Hangouts Sessions

Create Custom Graphics and Titles To Display Inside Live Google Hangouts Sessions | Online Video Publishing |
Robin Good's insight:

HangoutMagix is a free web app which allows you to create the graphics elements to make your live sessions inside Google Hangouts look more professional.  

With HangoutMagix you can create an overlay bar with your name and title, add a call-to-action and display the name of your show with its logo.

The tool is very simple and intuitive to use. You select the graphic element you want to personalize, edit the text, change the colors, select a style among the pre-set ones and you are ready to save a transparent .PNG file that you can then import into Google Hangouts interface.

Free to use.

A Real-Time Transcription App for Google Hangouts: Hangout Captions

A Real-Time Transcription App for Google Hangouts: Hangout Captions | Online Video Publishing |

Robin Good: Hangout Captions is a new experimental app for Google Hangouts that allows you to add a real-time text transcription of what is being said inside the Hangout.

The text transcription is displayed next to the event allowing deaf or hearing-impaired participants to read and understand fully the topic being discussed.

"“By adding the +Hangout Captions app, you can either connect live text from a professional transcriptionist to your Hangout, or type right into a text box yourself to transcribe a Hangout for your friends,” Naomi Black, technical program manager for accessibility engineering wrote in a post on Google+."

"You’ll only be able to see a transcription in the Hangout Captions side panel when someone in the Hangout is providing the transcription; either through live stenography (CART or palantype) or by simply typing into the app. Live transcription isn’t automatic."


"Hangout Captions is an app that connects live transcription services directly into a Google+ Hangout, improving accessibility for participants who are deaf or hard of hearing."

P:S.: In late May, Google added the ability to add captions to videos uploaded to Google+.
