The Integrity of Vision in Innovation

SyncWords boasts extremely high accuracy levels with automatic captioning, regardless of linguistic complexities in both source and output languages. This has been at the core of innovation for SyncWords as the world’s chosen captioning provider: meeting people where they are and building tools that serve people in the language of their choice.

Accuracy in automatic live captioning and subtitling can be enhanced with both custom-built and default ASR dictionaries and Translation glossaries, extending into 100+ output languages. Thus, all critical vocabulary, names, and brands will be correctly transcribed, translated, and delivered in real time to virtual event platforms, mobile phones, and web browsers.

All this is hassle-free, even with tight scheduling needs, complemented with personalized expert technicians for every single event, 24/7. Event agencies, organizers, and virtual meeting planners can use SyncWords’ solution to provide real-time captions and subtitles in multiple languages for webinars, conferences, and in-person live events through an embedded widget and a custom QR code access.

Solving Tech Challenges for Automatic Captioning

Not all virtual event platforms are optimized to work with automatic captioning (Live ASR). SyncWords can solve the problem by capturing the audio directly from the meeting application and sending it to the SyncWords Live platform for automatic captioning. This means audio from literally any meeting or virtual event application can work with the SyncWords Automatic Captioning solution: virtual, hybrid, in-person events, town halls, classrooms, webinars, commencements, Zoom, Webex meetings, OTT, social media streams, podcasts, keynotes, product launches, and others.

Provide a list of terms to our experts and let them help you create a custom dictionary that will significantly increase the accuracy of the Automatic Captioning for your event. For workflows that require translations, share a list of terms and their corresponding translations to help increase the accuracy of the Automatic Subtitling.
