Automated captions are cool but often inaccurate. We decided to design a series of experiments to compare specific short scripts of spoken audio. We used a variety of speakers for each test case.
Our presentation will share real data & lessons learned from a variety of artificial intelligence (AI) platforms to determine which one provides the most accurate results. We will also highlight the latest tools available from a variety of AI technologies working in this space.
Attendees will learn about:
Test cases for captioning
Different captioning AIs used in testing
SRT vs. VTT caption files
The quality of the displayed captions
And there will be time for your questions.
We're meeting in Asana. This event will be online & in-person.
