iPad Intro CC – Google Auto Captions vs. Transendia Captions
Posted by Tanya English at 4:07 pm
Apple recently unveiled the revolutionary iPad device and, of course, posted the video on YouTube. Since YouTube uses Google’s automatic captioning, the video must be accessible for anyone with hearing loss…right?
You be the judge.
Since getting YouTube’s captions to show up on the video can be a bit tricky, we decided to make it easy for you. We took a video that was recorded with the automatic machine-generated captions by Google being displayed on the screen. (They appear in the black box inside the video.) Then we captioned the video using Transendia. (The Transendia captions appear beneath the video.) This allows you to compare the two captioning methods head to head.
So, what do you think? We are interested in hearing your thoughts.
Go ahead and search around in the video using the transcript window on the left. The help file will show you all the features of the player. If you’d like to know more about Transendia and how you can use our searchable captions, let us know either here or by reaching us through the Contact Us page.
