Media firm Frameweld hosted a recent webinar, “The User Experience (UX) of Captions”, to explore how automation at the right places in the caption production workflow is the key to creating a better captioning experience.
Slideshow: The User Experience of Captions
Key challenges when captioning audio-visual content:
- Lack of captions is worse than ‘bad’ captions
- Caption segments are too long to read and assimilate
- Aiming for accurately-timed captions (as the words are spoken)
- Removing ‘redundant’ words and phrases like “um” and “you know”
Highlights in Frameweld’s post-webinar blog write-up include the need for quality standards in captioned media content, for human intervention when chunking/aligning captions with dialogue, and for automated processes.
