Mara Campbell, True Subtitles (Argentina)



The subtitling industry is constantly demanding shorter turnarounds and lower rates from its vendors. The market is swaying towards a more automated model, and finding different links in the chain of production that can be aided by new technologies is key to staying up to par with the competition.

These reasons lead my company to look for solutions to shorten production times and lower costs on some of our workflows. In automatic speech recognition (ASR) softwares created especially for the subtitling industry, we found ways of automating some of our processes.

In our presentation, we will describe the obstacles we encountered in the road of implementing these new workflows and the solutions we found to overcome them, and we will discuss the different ASR we tested and the results that we got with each.
