How does this feature affect Closed Captioning & Subtitles?
Traditionally, closed captioning and subtitles have aimed to accurately transcribe spoken words. However, nuances in pronunciation or specialized terms often pose challenges. With this innovative feature, users gain the ability to input special words phonetically, ensuring their correct pronunciation in subtitles.
From now users can input words in their desired pronunciation within the closed captioning or subtitle creation interface. Once entered, these customized pronunciations are recognized by the system, ensuring that when subtitles are generated, these words are accurately presented as intended.
