BKWine TV with subtitles coming

>> Tuesday, April 06, 2010

We now have some one hundred wine videos on BKWine TV. Depending on who we talk to the videos can be in Swedish, English or French. Our videos are now in the process of getting subtitles – in any language you would like! It is Google with their voice recognition software who are automatically generating the subtitles. And with the Google Translate feature you can then get them in whichever language you want. You can see an example in our video interview with Manuel Lobo, winemaker at Quinta do Crasto in the Douro Valley. At the bottom edge of the video you can see a red symbol “CC”. Click on it and choose “transcribe audio” and you get the automatic subtitles. You can then choose “translate captions” to select a different language for the subtitles. In a noisy environment (as in this video) the result is sometimes amusing (not 100% accurate) but in better conditions the quality can be amazing. As yet only a few of our videos are processed but we expect more to come soon. So, coming soon, our French videos with English subtitles for example. Fantastic!
