We have added a new tool to the videoportal for captioning your video.
Captioning is useful in various ways by making your video accessible for the hearing impaired as well as making your video more searchable as captions are also indexed by web-crawlers which ‘crawl’ the internet on behalf of search-engines to find as much information on a URL available as possible.
The tool automatically creates captions based on the audio and allows you to edit the captions and their timing afterwards which is a required step as mistakes can and will occur in the automatic process due to sound effects, music, mispronunciation, accents and through other means (the system however is very good).
And to have a extensive draft to work from and only having to correct any mistakes and timing issues is a lot less work than you would have if you had to create everything from scratch. That said we are very happy to introduce this new system!
For more information on this new tool we have written a guide (available in English as well as Dutch).
