Captioning Service Manager
University of Texas Austin
In support of the University of Texas Austin’s mission to provide captions and transcription for all remote course videos, the University of Texas at Austin Libraries Information Technology group partnered with the University Captioning and Transcription Service to develop a cloud-based automated transcription tool utilizing Amazon Web Services’ speech-to-text API. The tool represents an expansion of traditional manual efforts to create transcripts and closed captions. The service manager will discuss details around tool itself, the process of creating it, and the vision for future enhancements.
