VoiceInteraction, a technology company providing solutions in speech recognition, next week will introduce the fifth generation of its automatic closed captioning system for live shows and breaking news and the broadcast edition of its media monitoring system to help broadcasters comply with legal obligations and to provide actionable information on media content.

"In the last few years, there was an increase in demand for captioning solutions in the United States, but the question frequently raised by TV broadcasters relates to the accuracy levels that these solutions reach. We believe that in the near future, TV stations will migrate to automatic caption workflows," said VoiceInteraction's CEO, João Neto, in a statement.

The new version of AUDIMUS.MEDIA will help TV broadcasters and live streaming channels to produce closed captioning automatically. The solution is available for all types of live programming and breaking events, delivers accuracy of 95 percent to 98 percent, and ensures permanent compliance with Federal Communications Commission (FCC) requirements, according to the company.

The system's fifth generation comprises several major improvements, such as updated versions of the American English language model and a reduction of latency for captions during live broadcasts.

The new MMS Broadcast Edition is an integrated solution for video recording, storage and retrieval, comprising real-time tools for automatic transcription, segmentation and topic indexing of TV contents. The solution comprises a wide set of features: legal recording for auditing and compliance, TV ratings and advertisement identification, loudness monitoring, SEO tag generation, content reviewing and re-purposin based on keywords, audio, TV graphics, or captions.
