Broadcast Captioning Word List

Are you about to caption a broadcast and don't have a script? Are you tired of substituting a pronoun in place of a name that you couldn't possibly spell; let alone pronounce? We understand that you are as good as your dictionary, so as part of your membership, we would like to provide you with word lists to help you stay current so that you will be able to continue to provide your consumers with quality service.

The word list below includes names, places, and some bodies of water that may come up in your daily broadcast. To aid in your preparation, we have also included a phonetic spelling of the name for additional clarity. Now, when the name Dragoljub Ojdanic comes up, you'll be ready.  The word lists are in alphabetical order by last name. So when looking for Dragoljub Ojdanic, you would click on the link L-R and search under "O" for the name.  There you will find the name, and phonetic spelling, you are searching for.

Example:

Dragoljub Ojdanic -- DRAH'-goh-loob oy-DAHN'-ich
Hakeem Olajuwon -- ah-KEEM' ah-LAH'-zhoo-wahn
Danny Olivas -- oh-LEE'-vus
Ehud Olmert -- EH'-hood OHL'-murt
Omagh -- OH'-mah

Since efficiency is key, various categories are also listed to help you target your search. RFO is currently working on implementing a search engine to further make the process of finding information quicker.

We encourage you to keep the site open and available so that you may quickly search for the name you need during your broadcast. Remember, this is your site. We encourage any feedback you might have and welcome any suggestions as to other lists that you would find helpful.

We will do our best to update this list on a daily basis, but if you come across a word that is not on our list, please send that to us through the Writer's Forum.
