Important notes on the automated transcription service ASR.
- The University is subject to regulatory requirements to provide accessible video and audio content. For more information on these requirements, please visit the Creating accessible video and audio content guide.
- All new materials uploaded to Echo360 via Lecture Capture or Universal Capture will have a transcript generated automatically by the ASR system.
- The time it takes a transcript to generate will depend on the length of the video and current load on the ASR system. Minimum processing time 30 mins.
- Automatic transcripts are not 100% accurate especially when dealing with specialist topics.
- Transcripts are not captions. A transcript can be enabled as Closed Captions on your video content.
From 18th August 2020 all video and audio uploaded to the Echo360 system directly, via in-classroom automated Lecture Capture and Universal Capture will automatically have a transcript generated.
Video and audio uploaded before 18th August 2020 will not have a transcript automatically generated. Only videos to be used with students in the 20/21 academic year can be transcribed.
Where it has not been possible to review the accuracy of transcripts, ensure students know that transcripts have not been human-edited and clearly indicate who they should contact if they have any queries about transcript content.
Automatically generated transcripts are not 100% accurate. The accuracy of transcription will be impacted by several factors including, but not limited to, quality of audio, background noise, intonation, accent and use of technical or specialist language.
