Who is video spokesperson

A video spokesperson is a spokespersons practically coming into view on a website to welcome guests. A Video spokesperson naturally displays translucent surroundings, ending up with a borderless video of someone appearing on a website. This outcome is fairly vivid. Video spokesperson skill was initially came into view in the year 2003 and following that, frequent services emerged in market with these kinds of website speaking stuffs. There are “n” numbers of companies offering video spokesperson services all around the world, and they propose a broad range of alternatives for websinte holders who are hunting for a live virtual greeter for their webpage. A video spokesperson improves your business and the chance of fame is truly high. A website spokesperson can speak and move-on a websites, welcome people visiting that particular website, and stand as a talking lead on your website. This kind of speaking can also be incorporated with YouTube and other social media sites. Business owners are aware that a website at times requires a crumb of personal touch. In order to help with in that concept, video spokesperson services offers a business website that involves a real person to speak to a company's consumers and launch them the most important features that are required to be highlighted. The service presents a business with a host of actors and actresses to stands as a budding spokesperson. Most of the video spokesperson services make use of a studio with a screen (in green colour). Later, they digitally remove the green background so as to locate the spokesperson on the website.

The three most important factors to be considered when deciding to employ a video spokesperson are Script, Choice of presenter, and Placement on the page. Initially, write down a script suitable to your viewers and your objectives. The script must be described in understandable and reachable language.

Where can I get Financial presentation captioning

Captioning means providing the textual representation of an audio in any kind of video; be it a television program, documentary, DVD or a video from any real life event such as conferences etc. Meeting room captioning is nothing but subtitling for a video of a business meeting. Captioning can be done in two ways. In the first a recorded video is sent to a transcribing company which listens to the audio and provides the captions in the same language or nay other language desired by the customer. The other type of captioning is where these services are provided live. In this the captioning will appear a few second behind the audio in order to fully understand the information being shown. From the point if viewing again you have two types of captioning; closed and open. In the former you can turn on or off the captioning in the video as per your wish but in the latter case you are forced to see the text along with the audio even if you don’t want to. The benefits of captioning are immense especially in today’s global scenario where the world is shrinking day by day due to technological advancements. You have multinational companies who constantly move their employees from one place to another. When these employees attend a company meeting then they are faced with some difficulties. These employees experience new cultures and languages when they go to another country or even if they move to one that speaks their language’ there might be difficulty in understanding the accent. In such a situation if they were provided with a video with caption; then there can be surety that correct information has been conveyed. The governments across the world are pushing for inclusive employment and educating. This means that those among us who have any hearing impairments or any other disability may not be left out and all facilities to make their life convenient and full of dignity be provided. Captioning is a big step in that direction. This is often seen in government agencies that frequently employs such people. Business meetings provide training and up to date information about the company’s products and services and if you have a simultaneous video with real time captioning provided the deaf can as easily capture the information as those who can her. In another scenario these same videos can also be recorded and captioning provided for later viewings.For more details Financial presentation captionist .

Quote from Diamond Age

"Elegance?" "Pardon me, Your Honor, the concept is not easy to explain--there is an ineffable quality to some technology, described by its creators as a concinnitous, or technically sweet, or a nice hack--signs that it was made with great care by one who was not merely motivated but inspired. It is the difference between an engineer and a hacker." -- Judge Fang and Miss Pao in Neal Stephenson's The Diamond Age, or, A Young Lady's Illustrated Primer

A new Tuskegee Experiment

A NY city agency said Friday that it has asked for a review of its policies and whether they were followed when it allowed more than 400 HIV-positive children in foster care to be enrolled in tests of HIV drugs from the late 1980s to 2001.

John Mattingly, commissioner of the Administration for Children's Services, said the inquiry would look into whether the agency acquired the necessary parental or guardian permissions to include the children in the research.

The agency said that about 465 HIV-positive children were enrolled in drug tests between 1988 and 2001, the majority before 1996. The tests were conducted as researchers tried to figure out what kind of drugs would combat HIV and AIDS in children.

What have we learnedin the 33 years since the end of the 40 year Tuskegee Syphilis experiment?  Once again it is the most poor and defenseless put up as lab rats for corporate experimentation.

File your complaints: get us all some leverage on the beauracracy of big business.

Are you as fed up as I am with getting screwed out of your minutes? Or over billed for cable or whatever? These companies get away with it in part because we have such a limited voice in setting the prices or the quality of service.  If we all do our part, thing might change a little.

Sprint PCS Sucks Ass

All this week SprintPCS service has been completely screwed up.  Outbound calls would drop after varying intervals of connection often within the couple of minutes.  Also, I found that there were voice messages for calls that went directly to voicemail. This wasnt just a problem with my phone as I have two roomates who were having the exact same problem yet have 2 different and more recent phones than my own.

So I call Sprint and after about 20 minutes of arguing with the representative, I am offered 60 free minites.

Quick aside, if you are a person likemyself who has basically replaced his land line with a cell phone and has a plan with 2000 daytime minutes and unlimited off peak and evening minutes then free minutes as compensation is no compensation at all. This is no penalty for Sprint either.  There needs to be real compensation in the form of reducing your bill as in the Quality of Service Agreement other copmanies like bandwidth providers offer.  There is no leverage for forcing better service currently other than leaving the company.   We need more consumer advocacy and lobbying of the government and public shaming of companies who like Sprint think they can provide sub standard services with imputinty.

So back to the story at hand.  I get 60 free minutes and tell my roomates to also call and make a compalint to empasis to Sprint that there is an issue.  One of my roommates calls Sprint only to find that according to the operator she spoke with, that  there was NO REPORT of an issue in our area  on file.   Moreover, her more polite approach only got her 5 minutes of additional airtime. 5MINUTES!!!  This doesnt even equal the amount of time she had to waste speaking to these lazy jerks. Or the missed calls she had to then followup on. Or the wasted time in her life spent calling people over and over when calls repeatedly dropped.  Or even the poor reflection on her professional image for having such defective service.

After her call, I decided to call Sprint back to further berrate them for not recording the error in any appreciable way, for making client do the work of monitoring thier network, and for the lack of appreciable compensation. This lead to me being transferred to a supervisor named Ginger, operator number  GROANE01.  This woman, upon hearing my complaints at one point responded with "If you are so unhappy with our service why dont you just leave?" This is a great indicator of their actual respect for thier customers. My response  to her was that the ONLY reason i have service with Sprint is because when working properly thier network is 230kbs.

  But as you will see in other posts to this blog, that is not so frequently the case and if it werent for the idiosyncrasies of my professional life i would probably just drop them and switch to using just my Bluetoth Modem enabled, international capable,T-Mobile phone. The only unfortunate thing is that T-Mobile has a network with only 115kbs.  And for some reason there is a major dropped ball in the form of a bug with Bluetooth Authentication , the Nokia 3650 phone  and important Windows services like Terminal Service and Fax Service.   I will go into this further in a future post to see if any one else out there has the same problem.

So in the end, I am told that they will review my case and make an "appropriate adjustment" but that that would not be in the form of reimbursement on my bill.

Expiring Transportation Cards, Vacancy sensitive meters and other Digital and Non-Digital Ripoffs

Why should the Port Authority and MTA be allowed to expire fixed amount trip cards?  When I by a 30 trip Path Card there is no reason that the card should expire after a 60 or 90 days. In the old analog and token days, you bought 30 tokens and you could use them six months or six years later. For the infrequent traveller or perhaps telecomutuer who wants to invest in public transportation, the value of that investment is summarily rendered void for customers in the new age or digitally expired service.  Obviously, this would make sense in the case of a weekly or monthly pass but when a consumer pays for trips they should not be rendered void after some arbitrary deadline of which the consumer has no say.

Its not just digital systeme that have done this. Likewise the NJWaterways ferry service expires ferry tickets.  The complent seems petty but flip the equation around and you wil quickly realize the scale of monies taken from consumers/citizens with out the purchased services being rendered.

In many cities in America, you now see digital meters.  Pretty snazzy until you notice that they end the era of riding a fortuitous meter with extra time.  The new meters can sense when a car pulls away and automatically reset to zero.  Even more audacious was when i was about to ride a meter in Hoboken, NJ,  I was told by a police officer that I couldn't do so even when i had nanaged to pull in right behind the vacating driver thereby tricking the system.

Its for this reason that I warn all of you out there to also stay away from Gift Cards, Certificates or whatever they want to call the scam... Give Cash!!!  In the fine print of just about all of those gift certificates is an expiration date that effectively will give the store your money for free if your gift recipient hasnt spent it by the deadline. Beyond that seldom will a gift certificate get fully used with out the expenditure of some additonal money as the final bill almost never exactly matches the amount of the certificate.
