The problem with live subtitling

Companies that use live streaming require subtitles to provide barrier-free access and searchable content.

Live streaming has become increasingly important in the past few years. The volume of audio and video streams online has grown significantly, however, lots of these streams cannot be searched, tagged or indexed due to the lack of subtitles. Subtitling live streams have historically been done by humans for post-broadcast – leaving the live stream inaccessible to many.

More recently, strict regulations have been put in place to make online content accessible for those who are hard of hearing, deaf or situationally impaired. These regulations have helped to empower the adoption of speech-to-text for live subtitling.

 

How aiconix solves the problem

aiconix offers a solution using Speechmatics’ speech recognition engine to generate live subtitles within seconds of the video stream going live. By using the aiconix live editor, users can carry out a final check during live operation before the video and subtitles are streamed.

As a second step, users can translate the generated subtitles into a different language. For industries with sensitive data, it is also possible to use the aiconix solution – supported by Speechmatics – in a customer-hosted private environment, ensuring no sensitive data ever leaves the customer’s secure domain.

 

What results can be achieved?

Creating barrier-free access to all streamed media through live and pre-recorded subtitles is possible using the aiconix solution. Aiconix is leveraging Speechmatics’ world-leading speech-to-text at its core to help organizations – from small content creators to enterprise giants – leverage the value of automated subtitling.

The result – organizations can produce highly accurate automated subtitles all while reducing cost and simplifying workflows.
