The Challenge

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.

The Solution

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.

The Results

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. Built using machine learning, the Speechmatics engine provides fast and accurate automatic speech-to-text in over 50 languages. Speechmatics’ real-time capability enables aiconix to be fully automated, offering the highest quality live subtitles for streamed video and audio content. The aiconix solution allows users to test the accuracy of the speech recognition output in advance of a live streaming session. Users can make the most of Speechmatics’ Custom Dictionary feature to add industry-specific words, jargon or acronyms to the dictionary ahead of the live stream to uplift the accuracy.
