Speechmatics brings Advanced Punctuation to IBC 2019

Posted on 23.9.2019

The largest media show in Europe


Speechmatics also demonstrated Custom Dictionary and Sounds Feature. These features support broadcasters by further improving the accuracy of transcripts by enabling users to define the context of a conversation in advance by inputting brand names, place names, acronyms etc. ahead of time, so when these difficult terms come up, they are transcribed without error.

James Page, Product Owner at Speechmatics said,

“Showcasing Advanced Punctuation at IBC 2019 has gone down really well with the broadcast and media professionals attending the show. It was really rewarding to hear from users how the feature helps to enhance the readability and usability of transcripts. Seeing it being used in Red Bee Media’s live captioning of the IBC TV feed was a personal highlight. The feature is a huge productivity benefit for Red Bee Media and Limecraft as it helps to reduce time editing transcripts. “People who came to our stand to see our technology in action were wowed by the enhanced punctuation characters and the accuracy of their placement. They were also astonished at our language capabilities and stunned at the accuracy of the demo. “It’s been a pleasure powering so many of our partners at IBC Show this year and seeing them win awards for their technologies is a real testament to both parties.”
