Venera Technologies’ Cloud Native CapMate Further Extends Its Capabilities

​Venera Technologies has announced that CapMate, its cloud native caption/subtitle verification and correction solution, has further extended its time saving capabilities by adding the ability to automatically correct caption/subtitle issues without need of manual intervention, as well as the ability to translate captions to user requested languages and generate new caption files in those languages.

CapMate already provided a rich list of caption correction features. But these corrections were semi-automatic, still requiring operator involvement. With this new enhancement, CapMate can automatically analyze captions, detect issues, and correct them, generating new corrected caption files without any manual interventions. If desired, the auto-corrected and the uncorrected versions will still be available to review. This feature will further increase caption/subtitle QC workflow efficiencies for customers with large inventory of content to process.

Furthermore, CapMate now has the capability to translate the primary caption file into other user requested languages. It gives the user the ability to review the original captions and generate new translated caption files in various caption file formats. This will significantly improve the caption generation process for the content that needs to be presented globally in multiple languages. This will be of great help as content localization needs continue to grow rapidly.

CapMate contains a long list of caption QC capabilities such as detection of audio/caption sync, caption overlap on burnt-in text, missing captions, Characters Per Second, Character Per line, Caption overlap, spelling, and profanity. Moreover, CapMate provides an intuitive interface to review the result as well automatically or manually correct the issues and generate a new caption file.
