Want to pilot automatic transcripts for your Lecturecast recordings?
30 July 2019
Digital Education seeks Lecturecast users to try out automatic speech recognition functionality.
UCL Digital Education is seeking colleagues who already use Lecturecast to try out ‘automatic speech recognition’ (ASR) functionality.
Invaluable support for students
ASR has the potential to provide invaluable additional support for students with hearing difficulties, and will provide useful additional information for all students.
Testing the system
However, the system needs to be tested with a range of voices, accents and subjects – including those with specialist vocabulary – to assess the accuracy of the resulting transcripts, and how much work might be involved to correct them.
We would also like to explore how useful students in pilot groups find the service.
The project has been prompted by the legislation that came into law last autumn to ensure that digital content is accessible by everyone.
