SysMedia add speech presence detection to WinCAPs

SysMedia have announced a major new advance for their highly successful WinCAPs television subtitle preparation software: automatic speech presence detection.
This virtually eliminates the time-consuming and repetitive task of manually shuttling through video to trace dialogue start and end points. It will significantly reduce the time and cost of subtitle preparation, be it for hearing-impaired viewers or for language translation.
WinCAPS speech detection automatically seeks to determine the start and end of speech events and to discriminate speech from music and other background audio noise. This greatly simplifies the task of identifying the moment at which a subtitle needs to appear on the screen in synchronisation with the speaker. The detected speech onset timings can also be used as a rapid video navigation tool enabling the subtitler to progress faster from one speech segment to the next.
SysMedia CEO David Lowen said: "This new feature results from integration of the Aurix sound onset detection system developed by 20/20 Speech Limited. The Aurix technology is an excellent complement to our own video shot change analyser. With a typical television production requiring several hundred subtitling sync points, automatic speech presence detection will greatly improve our clients' operational efficiency."
A worldwide market leader, WinCAPS is a versatile software-based subtitling system running on a standard PC platform. Designed to maximise user productivity, it combines high versatility with a logical WYSIWYG user interface. Familiar Windows editing techniques (including find-and-replace, auto-text, spell checker and multi-level undo) simplify training and allow quicker editing, with a highly configurable user interface to satisfy diverse user requirements.
