VoCaption uses ASR or Automated Speech Recognition for live captions and real-time cost-savings for broadcasters.
Live captioning in a broadcast environment can be complicated and expensive. Commercial, Government, Public Access, Religious, Educational and Corporate broadcasters all have different needs and budget requirements.
Industry trends show live news increasing, new broadcasters entering the market and existing broadcasters expanding to attract more viewers and thus increasing demand for live captioning.
News, meetings and other live shows should be captioned, not only for the hearing impaired but also for viewers who need captions for other reasons.
Human captioning is expensive and the professional captioning industry is in decline. As captioners retire, younger people entering the job market are not choosing this profession which will lead to short supply and higher demand.
