Easy to Use

The Workbench can produce automated transcripts for closed captioning, subtitling, and rich metadata for media production, monitoring and analytics. The transcripts generated by the ASR and HMT in the source and target languages are immediately available within the portal for editing to improve accuracy. With the click of a button, users can insert edited versions of the text back into the source video which the system automatically aligns with the original audio content.
