Concurrent collaborative captioning
Captioned text transcriptions of the spoken word can benefit hearing impaired people, non native speakers, anyone if no audio is available (e.g. watching TV at an airport) and also anyone who needs to review recordings of what has been said (e.g. at lectures, presentations, meetings etc.) In this paper, a tool is described that facilitates concurrent collaborative captioning by correction of speech recognition errors to provide a sustainable method of making videos accessible to people who find it difficult to understand speech through hearing alone. The tool stores all the edits of all the users and uses a matching algorithm to compare users’ edits to check if they are in agreement.

Abstract

Captioned text transcriptions of the spoken word can benefit hearing impaired people, non native speakers, anyone if no audio is available (e.g. watching TV at an airport) and also anyone who needs to review recordings of what has been said (e.g. at lectures, presentations, meetings etc.) In this paper, a tool is described that facilitates concurrent collaborative captioning by correction of speech recognition errors to provide a sustainable method of making videos accessible to people who find it difficult to understand speech through hearing alone. The tool stores all the edits of all the users and uses a matching algorithm to compare users’ edits to check if they are in agreement.
