Diving into the main three key challenges that we still face when deploying Automatic Speech Recognition for subtitling pre-recorded and live content. Will and Hewson will discuss uncommon vocabulary, punctuation and the use of specific dialects and explain why these challenges still remain and how they could be addressed in the future.
