New White Paper: Understanding Live Automatic Captioning Quality
Updated: March 30, 2021
Online video streaming has been increasing rapidly over the last several years. The global video streaming market size is expected to reach 184.27 billion USD by 2027.
As technology evolves, and we rely on it more and more, we must be sure to include those with disabilities, including hearing loss, to make this content both accessible and legally compliant. One way to do so is by providing live captioning on streaming video.
What is Live Captioning?
Live captioning refers to providing captions, or time-synchronized text, in real-time. Live captions can be provided for a number of different mediums including virtual events, meetings, online courses, or performances.
There are several different techniques when it comes to the live captioning process, including live automatic captioning and live human captioning. Let’s explore each of these techniques and processes and how they compare.
