Key professional captioning features that make the SyncWordsPro Caption Editor powerful:
Auto-placement - The SyncWords platform can analyze your video for on screen text and other key elements that should not be blocked by closed captioning text. By applying this filter, all closed captioning text will be automatically moved to avoid these sensitive areas.Auto-placement can be fine-tuned by captioners in the Pro Caption Editor.
Auto Scene Detection - To meet accessibility standards, our AI captioning tools can detect all scene changes in your video media and set up indicators within the Pro Caption Editor. SyncWords can also automatically snap the caption timing to start of a new scene.
Auto Timing - One of the key features of SyncWords is the ability to take a plain text transcript in English or Spanish and automatically time stamp the words based on the spoken dialogue in your media. This means that if you have a transcript of your video, SyncWords can match that to your video and complete the captioning project in about half the media run time.
Auto Paint-On - For professional post-production companies that create short form content such as commercials and promo’s, SyncWords can automatically set the first caption to be paint-on to meet technical requirements. This means that this preset can be assigned to all relevant projects and minimize the chance of error.
Automatic Speech Recognition (ASR) - Create a transcript automatically with best in class cloud based speech engines. Organizations can simply upload their media and automatically have SyncWords create a transcript and caption project that can be reviewed and edited with the Pro Caption Editor.
Auto Translate - SyncWords can take a completed caption project and translate the captions into more than 40 languages. This feature enables users to localize their media and work with translators anywhere in the world.
