ASR captions language

I don't know how you guys could pull this off but if you can make the automatic captions detect language and create the captions in the detected languages that would be a major win. We currently like a lot companies have locations and users outside of the U.S. who's recordings are in different languages and because our Panopto account is based in the U.S. captioning their videos isn't an option and that's too bad.

We are planning to add the ability to have multiple ASR languages per site.


  • I think even having a workflow where a content owner can request captions in the correct language would be a workable solution.

    I like the new beta functionality, however, it only works at the folder rather than at the individual video level.

    I read that it is difficult to detect language automatically, however, I don't think it is necessary. A meta feature that would be interesting for us is the ability to split a stream into multiple parts, allowing for features like rearranged your various cuts in the timeline. Being able to then request multiple captions languages on each stream cut would be very effective for a foreign language course, where the instructor may be speaking in multiple languages during the video.

  • Agreed! Our organization is worldwide with a variety of languages that are recorded in those languages other than English. While I like the feature of being able to upload captions in mutliple languages, it is a longer process to have a video recorded in another language, edit the captions to English, then translate them into another language. Would be cool if there was a way to allow each creator to select their language when recording to use ASR for that language...
