Web Workshop: Automatic Speech Recognition and Captions via Kaltura
From Daniel Harmon on 09/20/2017
Automatic Speech Recognition and Captions via Kaltura
Kaltura now offers an easy way to create closed captioning (CC) files. Aside from being required by law, CC technology can aid viewers with hearing impairments, certain learning disabilities, and non-native English viewers. It also makes your videos searchable, which makes them easier to find, reuse at later date, or use as a study aid. We will demonstrate the ASR caption tool, walk attendees through the editor, and show some of the benefits of captioning.
