Jim Tierney, Chief Anarchist at Digital Anarchy, is back to go in-depth on Transcriptive, their new speech-to-text plug-in for Adobe Premier Pro. Jim details how transcriptions can be useful as part of the editing process, not just as documentation of a video or a caption. The magic is done through IBM’s Watson or Speechmatics processing, and Jim gives us the details of what works well and what still needs improvement in speech technology. What his future plans are for Transcriptive, and why Digital Anarchy decided to tackle this particular project are all part of the discussion.
