TelVue Connect has an optional feature that leverages IBM Watson’s speech-to-text algorithms to automatically generate timed Closed Caption files for videos: WebVTT for CloudCast VOD and OTT streaming, and 608/708 for broadcast.
To generate the closed captions:
The accuracy of any closed caption file depends on the clarity of the speech in the video. If necessary, a closed caption file can be improved with manual editing and re-timing.
One versatile and free open-source caption editing tool is CADET, developed by the National Center for Accessible Media at WGBH. Download the CADET app to your computer and then open in a browser. To edit a caption file:
Users can translate the primary captions to over 100 additional languages using the optional TelVue Connect Caption Translation service.
Users can track the usage of their captioning hours at Administration → Reports → Caption Generation Usage Reports.
The TelVue Closed Captioning service can be purchased in blocks of 100, 500, and 1,000 hours. Please contact email@example.com for pricing.
