Once integrated into your video management system, you have the choice to activate either manual or human captions directly supplied by AmberScript. The rest of the process happens automatically so that the right captions end up at the right video-asset.

Case Study – Webcast and Dutch Municipalities

Municipalities are obliged to make council meetings accessible to people with hearing disabilities. There are about 120 Dutch municipalities that work together with company Webcast – a market leader in the field of webinars and webcasts.

Webcast used Google’s voice recognition to automatically produce subtitles for video content. However, the accuracy wasn’t good enough for deaf and hearing-impaired.

Some municipalities, such as the municipality of Enschede, have opted for the AmberScript speech recognition engine, which produces accurate subtitles that are well understood by deaf and hearing-impaired people.

Some other municipalities, such as the municipality of Barneveld, have chosen to have the subtitles perfected through Amberscript Perfect service.

In both cases, the quality of subtitling went up dramatically, and those are just two examples of our technology in action. You can read more about this case study here.
