Automatic Dubbing –
AppTek has launched the world’s first fully automatic speaker-adaptive dubbing solution designed to accelerate the dubbing process and help content creators reach more audiences across the globe without the high costs and lengthy timelines involved in professional dubbing services. The service is the first of its kind to transcribe and translate audio from a source language and present it back in the same voice in the target language while maintaining the time constraints, style, formality, gender and other context- or domain-specific translations to produce a more accurate and user-friendly dub.
Subtitling and Captioning Solutions for Media Localization –
AppTek’s ASR and meta-aware MT technologies are designed to reduce manual labor and accelerate production timelines for captioning and subtitling workflows. by making use of content metadata, such as genre, style, speaker gender, etc. to produce more accurate machine translations. Furthermore, the company’s highly advanced “Intelligent Line Segmentation” technology has been trained via neural networks on the segmentation decisions of professional captioners and subtitlers in order to deliver more accurately segmented automated subtitles which can provide a significant jump-start to professional workflows.
Speech Synthesis –
AppTek’s text-to-speech technology converts written text into spoken words using either pre-built or customized voices. The technology can be used in a wide range of applications, such as offering accessibility for disabled users for critical text-based news crawls, such as to announce school closings.
Voice Conversion –
AppTek’s voice conversion technology transforms one person’s voice into another person’s voice and can be used for a variety of purposes, such as creating virtual voice actors where adult actors can mimic the voices of child actors or adding personalized voice-over to videos or advertisements.
Language Identification –
AppTek’s language identification technology determines the language of a given text or audio input which can be used for more efficient management of unknown subtitle or audio files, or identify multiple languages within a given file to segment for other automatic processes such as automatic speech recognition or machine translation.
