DigitalChalk teams with IBM for Closed Captioning

We are very pleased to announce that DigitalChalk has jointly partnered with IBM and Hunter College to be the first online video training system to offer automatic closed captioning capabilities.

What is exceptional about his process is that it's fully automated. Prior to this technology being introduced, user-submitted video content online had to be manually transcribed and the closed captioning had to be loaded into the play script using a tool such as Magpie. By sending the video through a text-t0-speech translation engine and getting a full transcript with time coding, DigitalChalk customers will get (CC) automatically. We are also offering an online editor that let's the trainer tweak the timing and fix any errors before publishing.
