How to Enable

To enable the feature, please be sure to reach out to your Account Manager to have the feature enabled.

Once the feature is enabled by your Account Manager, navigate to Settings > Configuration Options > Recognition > Transcription for Videos and turn the feature On. Once the feature is enabled you can monitor how many hours were used to transcribe videos.

Note: We use AWS transcription software that is run by machine learning. Captions may be transcribed with errors. However, after transcribing the video, you will have an easy to read file SRT at the ready for you to Download and make any needed changes and to Upload back into the video file. See below for more details.

How to Use

In the Preview mode, click on the Transcribe Video icon to open the Video Transcription options: 


In addition to the manual process (see here for more info), you will now see the automatic transcription option as well. 

Select the correct language you would like the video to be transcribed in and select Transcribed.

Once the process is complete, the user will get a message notification in Canto and an email with additional details letting them know that the analysis is complete. 

Making Edits

You can make changes to the transcribed video by clicking Download. You should then have downloaded a ready to edit SRT file. You can use any text editor to edit the file (ie. Notepad or TextEdit). Transcription is timestamped.. 

Once you have made the necessary changes, you can click Upload to upload the SRT file with the updated captions.
