Dedicated caption editors

Richard BrowneRichard Browne Crackerjack
edited February 2021 in Feature Requests

Good morning,

Is there a way to assign a role to a user which allows them to edit the ASR captions on a video without having the capacity to change anything else on that video?

If not, can I suggest this role be considered as a feature request?

Kind regards,

Richard

  • I requested this at least a year ago. Roles did not help. I hope we can get this solved soon. They just need to add a new role that will allow that person to edit captions only. Nothing else. They may need to create a module just for that out of the editor.

    @Richard Browne Currently, there isn't a role that just allows editing the ASR captions. We can definitely add this as a feature request, so I'm going to move this post to the feature request section.

  • Hey @Kathryn do you know if this is in the dev pipeline? I think it would a great and popular feature to have.

  • This is a much-needed feature. Automated captions have a sub-optimal accuracy, we need a scalable way of implementing captions corrections. So, roles for a caption correctors, and ideally a workflow for prioritising, assigning for correction, verification/approval of corrections etc. Many institutions are likely to share this requirement.

    @Louis Pliskin I confirmed that this is not currently planned for the first half of this year. However, this item will be considered for future development - we agree that it would be useful!

  • Just to reinforce the other comments, this is definitely needed. In order to comply with accessibility legislation, we need a feasible way of correcting captions. The ability to enable students or support staff to correct captions by assigning them a specific role would be really valuable.
