CHALLENGES WE FACED TO ASSIGN A REAL-TIME CAPTIONER
Due to the new norm there has been a significant rise in Virtual events and using Closed Captions /Subtitles to the Webinars &Meetings have become imperative.Scheduling team had a great challenge in assigning a captioner as they were swamped with plenty of other projects.
In Spite of the critical situation , the Sales team assigned the Real-time captioners to cover both the events and the client was overwhelmed with our timely support and coordination.Amy , Assistant Director appreciated our wholesome efforts for providing incredible support to Live Caption their events.
We also suggested the benefits of Post Event Services and the value it adds to the overall execution of the Webinar.They wanted perfect captions to be added to their post event recordings in Zoom.
HOW OTTR.AI ENHANCED AUTOMATED LIVE CAPTIONS
Brandeis University have tried using Otter.ai an automated Live Captioning system to Live Caption their Zoom webinar with a fine quality of 80-85% .Wendy wanted our technical team to edit the Zoom Recording & the transcripts.
