Create more engaging digital media experiences
If you have a bare Webcast, podcast, or digital video or audio, in need of captions, you can use the IBM® AbilityLab™ Media Captioner and Editor to create them automatically!
The IBM AbilityLab Media Captioner and Editor has two parts:
- The media captioning server – this Web-based program accepts files to be captioned. The server reads your submitted file several times, using advanced automatic speech recognition technology to interpret the spoken words and create a "written" transcript. After a period of time – several minutes to overnight, depending on the size of your content file – the media captioning server creates and sends the written transcript to your system for you to review, edit, and approve.
In addition, the server will accept the corrected caption from the media captioning editor (see below), merge the captions onto the original content, and send you a captioned file.
- The media captioning editor – this full-screen editor enables you to open the transcript file and work with the text to ensure the words are correct, that the spelling is right and that the message is polished and synchronized with the video or audio.
