Clevercast allows (multilingual) closed captions to be added to an existing live stream in several ways:
- Speech-to-text conversion with manual correction. The speech in a live video stream can be automatically converted into closed captions by using a speech-to-text service (AI). Before they are shown in the video player (or auto-translated into other languages), the closed captions can be corrected by a human editor using a browser.
- Transcription in real time: humans can use Clevercast to type the transcription in real time using a browser, resulting in closed captions in the video player.
- Automatic translation: closed captions resulting from speech-to-text conversion and manual transcription can be automatically translated into closed captions in multiple languages.
All types of closed captions can be combined with audio translations through remote simultaneous interpretation. Any number of languages is possible. Combining speech-to-text and manual transcription in the same live stream is currently not possible.
Clevercast delivers a high-quality, global live stream to your viewers using adaptive streaming. The embedded player’s closed caption menu allows your viewers to choose their preferred language at any point in the live stream. Clevercast player provides the best possible viewing experience on any device and platform. All closed captions are recorded and can be used for Video on-Demand.
If you require a fully hosted solution, you can also use Clevercast Webinar with multilingual closed captions. If your content is pre-recorded you may want to use pseudo-live streaming, with support for closed captions and audio translations.
