Respeaking and Automatic Speech Transcription services for top quality Subtitling and Captioning

We have developed an innovative, brand new generation of products and services for multilingual subtitling.

The goal of SAVAS is to develop an Automatic Speech Recognition (ASR) technology for Multilingual Live Subtitling, specifically tuned to the needs of the Broadcasting and New Media Industries.
A set of 7 languages has been developed: Basque, Spanish, Italian, French, German, Portuguese and English
The ASR Engines are fostering the release of new subtitling products and services:

      1. a Speaker Independent Transcription System for live and batch production of multilingual subtitles
      2. a collaborative Respeaking System, for live and batch production of multilingual subtitles
